Real estate investment may be a safer bet

Worried about risk with the stock market? Consider buying a home instead. Real estate may be a safer investment!

Scared of Stocks? Buy a House Instead: New research shows that real estate is both a better and safer investment than previously believed.
"The authors of the aforementioned study — Òscar Jordà, Moritz Schularick and Alan M. Taylor — have constructed a new database for the U.S. and 15 other advanced economies, ranging from 1870 through the present. Their striking finding is that housing returns are about equal to equity returns, and furthermore housing as an investment is significantly less risky than equities."
