Description: Even in uncertain economic times like these, history shows that real estate is one of the soundest investments a family can make. Also remember that the stock market is not the only place where people can make their fortunes. And also, you’ll hardly ever hear of real-estate investors who’ve gone bankrupt, unlike stock market investors.

Even in uncertain economic times like these, history shows that real estate is one of the soundest investments a family can make. During the Great Depression of the 1930s when the stock market plummeted as much as 89 percent, housing prices dropped only 39 percent. So, according to most of the research on housing trends, prices continually stay at the same level as, and most often appreciate faster than the rate of inflation. In fact, the prices of houses actually increased by 10 percent during the economic recessions of the mid-19702 and the early 1980s.

The last downturn of the global stock market resulted in millions of investors who got their fingers burned. Overnight, life savings were eaten away, retirement funds went into decline and the economic forecast for all of us who had any money invested in stocks and shares was gloomy, to say the very least. And as a direct result, investors sought alternative asset classes to invest their hard earned money in. This has led to a global boom in real estate markets and property prices, and has spawned a generation of budding real estate investors.
