#1 Long-Term Investment: Real Estate on the Peninsula Yields Returns
Real estate has long been considered one of the best long-term investments. Real estate historically outperforms stocks and bonds long term. This means that your home is a proven investment that will grow in value over time.
This is especially true on the Peninsula, where the demand for housing is high and the supply is limited. There are a few reasons why real estate is a good investment in the Bay Area Peninsula.
First, the value of real estate has historically appreciated in value over time and all signs continue in that direction.
According to Zillow, the median home value on the Peninsula has increased by over 50% in the past 10 years.
In the past 2 years, the median home value on the Peninsula increased by over 10% compared to the 3% national average.
Second, real estate can be a hedge against inflation. When inflation rises, the value of your home is likely to rise as well. This means that your home will be worth more in real terms, even if the price tag goes up.
Third, real estate can provide you with a steady stream of income. If you invest in a property to generate business income, you can rent out your property to tenants.
Of course, there are some risks associated with investing in real estate. The value of real estate can also go down, especially in areas where the economy is struggling. It can also be illiquid as a quick cash option. We see lower risk in both areas on the Peninsula.
