Should I Invest In Real Estate?

A survey by The Joint Center of Housing Studies at Harvard University reveals that when a family is buying a home they consider the financial benefits of home ownership along with the social benefits. The survey mentions things like:

  • Paying rent does not make sense
  • Home ownership provides a good financial opportunity
  • Owning a home helps you building family wealth
  • Buying a home is investing in your retirement
  • Home equity gives you something to borrow against

So how did home ownership match up against other investments in 2015? Here is a chart that compares its return on investment against precious metals and the stock market last year.
