Real estate has proven time and time again to be one of the best ways to protect your wealth during a recession. On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, you’re going to learn why real estate is the best way to protect your hard-earned money, plus specific tips you can use to protect your investments during a recession.
You’re going to learn how real estate investments measure up against stocks, and the truth about our affordable housing crisis. I’m also sharing a fool-proof game plan for building a strong investment strategy during a recession.
On this episode you’ll learn:
- The history of real estate during times of economic downturn.
- Why tangibility is an important quality of real estate.
- Tips for building a recession-proof investment strategy.
The History of Real Estate During Times of Economic Downturn
Stocks (and stock-based retirement accounts) fluctuate with the economy, which can equal high risk in times of inflation or recession. Alternatively, real estate does not follow this pattern. Real estate tends to remain steady (or even increase in value) during tough economic times. Real estate also provides steady cash flow and steady returns, regardless of what is happening in the economy.
Why Tangibility Is an Important Quality of Real Estate
A piece of real estate offers tangibility that other asset types simply cannot provide. With a stock, all you have is a piece of paper representing your investment. But real estate is a real, tangible property that you can visit — and that can never go down to zero in value.
Tips for Building a Recession-Proof Investment Strategy
- Take advantage of low interest rates during hard economic times.
- Look for bargains when times get tough.
- Educate yourself on different markets.
- Diversify your portfolio.
- Have an exit plan.
