Real estate is the most favored investment in the U.S, as has been the case since 2013. The popularity of stocks has suffered due to recent volatility caused by the Coronavirus outbreak, but still remain as people’s next most popular investment. Trailing real estate and stocks are gold and savings accounts. I’m not sure how savings accounts could be called “investments” with the tiny amount of interest they accrue, but apparently some people consider them as such. The clear conclusion is that real estate has proven to be the best place to put your money, and in the Phoenix area, failing to do so is a missed wealth building opportunity.
