Gallup surveys Americans every year to determine their choice for the best long-term investment. Respondents have a choice between real estate, stocks/mutual funds, gold, savings accounts/CDs, or bonds.
Real Estate has been on top as the best long-term investment for the fourth year in a row! The results this year showed that 34% of Americans chose real estate, followed by stocks at 26%. The full results are shown in the chart below.
This study shows the contrast of the sentiment over the last four years compared to that of 2011-2012, when gold was on top with 34% of the votes. Real estate and stocks had taken second and third places, respectively, while still in recovery from the Great Recession.
As the real estate market has recovered, so has the belief of the American people in the stability of housing as a long-term investment.
