Warren Buffett: It’s Time to Buy Real Estate

Warren Buffett: It’s Time to Buy Real Estate by THE KCM CREW on FEBRUARY 29, 2012 · 4 COMMENTS Warren Buffett appeared live on CNBC’s Squawk Box this week. During the interview, he was asked about the current real estate market and whether he felt now was the time to buy. His response was rather emphatic and has been used as a headline in hundreds of articles since the interview: “If I had a way of buying a couple hundred thousand single-family homes I would load up on them.” However, throughout the interview, he addressed the market from a few angles. Here is what he said: Why invest in real estate now? “It’s a way, in effect, to short the dollar because you can take a 30-year mortgage and if it turns out your interest rate’s too high, next week you refinance lower. And if it turns out it’s too low, the other guy’s stuck with it for 30 years. So it’s a very attractive asset class now.” Is buying your own home better than investing in stocks right now? “If I knew where I was going to want to live the next five or 10 years I would buy a home and I’d finance it with a 30-year mortgage… It’s a terrific deal.” Should we buy multiple houses? “If I was an investor that was a handy type and I could buy a couple of them at distressed prices and find renters, I think it’s a leveraged way of owning a very cheap asset now and I think that’s probably as an attractive an investment as you can make now.” Over the last couple of months, there have been more and more financial analysts coming to the same conclusion: It’s time to buy real estate. http://www.kcmblog.com/2012/02/29/warren-buffett-its-time-to-buy-real-estate/
