Real Estate Tops Best Investment Poll For 5 YearS
To determine what Americans consider the best long-term investment choice, Gallup surveys Americans each year. Survey respondents are asked to choose between real estate, stocks and mutual funds, gold, bonds or savings account and Certificate of Deposits (CD's).
For Five years in a row, real estate has been the top choice for respondents as the best long-term investment choice.
This year's findings show 34% of Americans selected real estate, while 26% chose stocks and bonds. the chart below illustrates The full study results.
Emphasized in the study is the contrast in the sentiment over the past 5 years as compared to years 2011 and 2012, when the best investment choice was gold with 34% of votes. Coming in at second and third choice was real estate and stocks/bonds while the US was still recovering from a recession.
As the real estate market has recovered, Americans have once again continued to believe in the stability of real estate as a long-term investment choice.
