Gallup polled over 1,000 adults and found that 31 percent of respondents considered real estate to be the best long-term investment, 25 percent of those surveyed said that stocks and mutual funds are the best long-term investment, followed by gold at 19 percent. This marks a big change from 2011-2012 when gold was the most appealing investment. While confidence in real estate declined during the global banking crisis and recession, real estate is now ranked as the top investment choice or tied for the top choice among all major gender, age and income groups. A recent generational trends study from the National Association of REALTORS® reported that 79 percent of all buyers surveyed considered buying a home a “good financial investment.”
