According to Bankrate’s latest Financial Security Index Poll, Americans who have money to set aside for the next 10 years would rather invest in real estate than any other type of investment.

據Bankrate的最新財務安全指數民意調查,由能力可在未來10年儲蓄的美國人認為,投資房地產比任何其他投資來得值得。

Bankrate asked Americans to answer the following question:

Bankrate請美國人回答以下問題:

“Which would be the best way to invest money you did not need for more than 10 years?”

“什麼是最佳投資方式來使用未來10年您所不需要的金錢?”

Real Estate came in as the top choice with 25% of all respondents, while cash investments (such as savings accounts and CD’s) came in second with 23%. The chart below shows the full results:

Sterling White, co-founder of Holdfolio, gave one reason as to why real estate may have ranked so high.

Holdfolio的創始人之一史達林.懷特給了一個為什麼房地產投資排名這麼高的理由。

“Houses are tangible. You can physically see and feel the product. So you know where your money is going.”

“房屋是有形的,是可以看得見摸得著的東西,所以您知道錢是花在哪裡。”

July’s poll also found that for the “26th consecutive month, Americans’ sense of financial well-being improved when taking into account debt, savings, net worth, job security, and overall financial situation.”

七月份的調查還發現,“連續第26個月,美國人感覺財務狀況好轉,包括債務,儲蓄,財力,就業保障,和整體財務狀況。”

Bottom Line
結論

There are several reasons, both financial and non-financial, as to why homeownership makes sense. It is nice to see that Americans have returned to a belief in homeownership as the best investment.

無論是財務或是非財務原因,購買房屋都是有道理的,很高興地看到,美國人了解購買房屋為最好投資的觀念。
