"Now, after painfully maneuvering through the ruins of what the bubble burst left behind — the flood of short sale and foreclosure properties into the market driving home values to a steep decline — we have come to a place where many real estate experts and financial advisers, like Warren Buffett, feel that it is not only safe to invest in real estate as a financial asset again, it’s the top choice for making the most out of the declining value of our U.S dollar.
Warren Buffett, lauded as one of the most respected, successful investors in the world, told CNBC in February that if he were a young investor, with a choice of investing in the stock market or buying his first home, he would select buying a home as the wisest choice.
Timing the real estate market successfully pertains to monitoring and interpreting the changes affecting the market — in both directions — on the downside and on the upswing when the market shows signs of recovery. Knowing when to buy at the low and when to sell at the high, and having a plan for how to manage your financial assets in between those two extremes, has always been the savvy investors’ key to building and holding on to wealth."
