Buying a House Hedges Against Inflation
As interest rates increase and inflation surges, what can you do to protect the value of your money? Here's my short answer: Invest in real estate. Today I'll explain why homeownership is a great hedge against inflation, but before I get to that, I would like to share my recent interview with The Washington Post. They asked me to share my thoughts about the current market, and if you'd like to read what I had to say, you can visit this link.
Going back to my point about real estate being a great hedge against inflation; at 0:39, you'll see a graph that shows the average inflation compared to home price growth from the 1970s to the present. The blue bars are the average inflation rates in each decade, while the green bars are the average home price appreciation.
"If you want to buy a home in today's market, don't let inflation stop you."
The graph proves that real estate has outpaced inflation historically. If you want to buy a home in today's market, don't let inflation stop you.
