Real Estate Continues to be the Best Investment

Even when inflation is high like today, Americans recognize owning a home is a powerful financial decision. Because inflation has reached its highest level in 40 years, it is more important than ever to understand the benefits of home ownership. Rising inflation means prices are increasing across every commodity, and that includes goods, services, housing costs, and more.

Some of the gains have been:

  • Larger equity increases across the entire state
  • Record low default and foreclosure rates
  • High demand / Low Inventory
  • An…

Why is there a housing shortage?

The Pros and Cons of Waiting Out the Hot Housing Market
