One of the Best Investments You Can Make Real Estate Prices have gone up in recent years while the stock market dropped. It is better to buy a first home before putting money in the market? - Peter Lynch Vice Chairman of Fidelity Management and Research Co. former manager of Fidelity’s flagship Magellan Fund
One of the Best Investments You Can Make Beyond the beneficial economics of home ownership such as low down payments, capital appreciation, and tax deductions, there are key psychological reasons a home is a great investment: you aren’t inclined to sell the roof over your head to satisfy a whim or escape a bear market. And there is no ticker tape for real estate investments or TV Commentators mentioning that the house next to you declined 10%. Also the average price increase nationally has been about 5% for the past 10 years. It does not sound like much, but if you buy a $100, 000 house and you put 20% down, and it goes up 5% a year, you’re getting $5, 000 on your $20, 000 down payment. That’s a 25% return on your investment!
