Is Real Estate a Hedge Against Inflation? May 6, 2022 by Jennifer Nelson https://youtu.be/KWKJxFtX16YHello all and welcome to today’s market update. I want to talk briefly about how real estate and homeownership in specifics, is a hedge against inflation. And we are all seeing the effects and feeling the effects of inflation today. As we ended December with 7% inflation rate. Oh my goodness. So, how can you lock in your largest monthly expense and make it stable? Homeownership! Homeownership does that if you can get in at today’s rate at today’s cost, as prices rise, so do property values. Home values have outplayed inflation overall since the seventies, but you can’t say that about rentals. If you are renting, your rental prices, since the seventies have increased at a faster rate than inflation. If you’re on the fence about timing, and if you think you might be ready, let’s get off that fence and help you today. Don’t look back five years from now and realize that you have missed an incredible opportunity. Timing is crucial. Reach out to me today. Jennifer Nelson, RE/MAX Properties 719-648-4539.
