How big of a deal is the U.S. Housing market? Even after a historic devaluation, U.S. residential real estate ranks among the world’s largest asset classes. How does residential real estate compare against other asset classes?
This comparison by Radar Logic shows the footprint of U.S Housing and asks: “Given its relevance to the overall economy, should it be among your allocations?”
As an REO listing agent for Bank of America and other lenders in the Tampa Bay area, we see a surge in both first-time investors and institutional investors buying residential real estate. I know Tampa Realtors who spend all of their time helping hedge funds buy units in bulk. We are also seeing many international investors, including a surge from China. Rather than focusing on immediate appreciation, we see a premium placed on cash flow. Is it time for you to think about investing in real estate?
