Stocks Versus Real Estate?

13 March 2006 - Markets - Editor

To avoid hearing about the real estate bubble, you must have been living in a bubble. For the last year, every time I've picked up a magazine, I have read yet another article on the topic.

Well, the bubble may not have burst yet, but housing markets are definitely slowing in many areas of the U.S. So, it's about time for investors to switch from real estate to stocks. Although this can help the market, the surplus investors may cause prices to rise as well.

Getting into the stock market now is your best bet for success, though if you're in an area with extensive growth, real estate may still have a lot to offer. If you start buying now, then when prices rise, you’ll be making money from the increase.

Don't stay behind investing in real estate. You may make money there, but when prices do fall, the consequences may be great for some die-hard real estate investors. Instead, begin preparing for the stock market upswing and patiently wait for the growth.

Buyer Beware: Construction, contracting, and loan companies are likely to take a hit when the housing bubble bursts, so make sure you know exactly where a company’s assets and commitments lie before buying.
