With the stock market in decline and fears of a recession on the horizon, investors have begun to look beyond traditional markets and consider moving more of their wealth into alternatives such as real estate. Real estate investments continue to perform at historically high levels and respond favorably to inflationary pressure.
However, many investors remain wary after losses experienced in the last recession.
While all investment involves risk and property values may see corrections as markets find equilibrium, underlying fundamentals are entirely different than they were in 2008. Most economists do not expect a recession driven by real estate shocks to the credit markets.
