Best New Hampshire Seacoast investment? It’s Still Real Estate.

Real Estate Tops Best Investment Poll for 7th Year Running

Every year, Gallup conducts a survey of Americans to determine their choice for the best long-term investment. Respondents are asked to select real estate, stocks/mutual funds, gold, savings accounts/CDs, or bonds.

For the seventh year in a row, real estate has come out on top as the best long-term investment. Gallup explained:

“Real estate remains the most favored investment to Americans, as has been the case since 2013, when the housing market was on the rebound. More than a third of Americans have named real estate as the top investment since 2016.”

This year’s results indicated 35% of Americans chose real estate, followed by stocks at 21%. The full results covering the last decade are shown in the chart above.

But, we advocate a particular kind of real estate for the beginning investor. We like two to four-unit buildings for the new investors; here’s a couple of reasons.

  1. Better financing. Owner-occupied financing for 2 to 4 unit buildings is much more attractive with lower down payment requirements and better loan terms.
  2. There is a much large selection of 2 to 4 unit buildings for sale than there are larger complexes.
