According to a recent study, more than 1 in 4 Americans believe real estate is the best investment for assets they will not need for a decade or more. This same study found that just 17% of Americans would consider the stock market for long term investment compared to the 27% for those buying investment properties. This survey has been conducted for the previous three years and this is the first year in which real estate investment has garnered the top spot. With the vast improvements we have seen in our Daytona Beach area real estate market over the last two years, this comes as no surprise. Interest rates are still at all-time lows, and the fact that many of the distressed properties that attract cash-buyers have diminished, only points to further stabilization of real estate values going forward.
