Record-low mortgage rates and shortage of inventory are keeping the US housing market strong. Prices have been surging month-over-month breaking new records, but today’s guest says that real estate might not be as expensive as you think.
When you compare real estate to other commodities using the HCI, although it may seem controversial, it is clear to see the opportunity is now.
Commodities, unlike dollars, have intrinsic value. They are meaningful regardless of any currency. By comparing real estate prices to gold, bitcoin, oil, rice, orange juice, shares of the S&P 500, copper, air travel, college tuition, sugar, cocoa, and many others going all the way back to 1970, we can get a more complete understanding of where the market is now.
Jason Hartman, the Founder, and CEO of The Hartman Media Company and creator of The Hartman Comparison Index says, “By using data combined into an index and compare that index to housing prices, we can mitigate risk and have a lot of upside potential by using that data.”
Hosts Robert and Kim Kiyosaki and Jason Hartman discuss how measuring real estate to other commodities using the Hartman Comparison Index is the best way to understand where the value of real estate has been, where it is now, and where it’s going in the future.
