Why spend six figures on an ongoing expense that will not appreciate in price?Mebbe because they've been sold a bill of goods?https://dqydj.com/real-estate-return-calculator-any-home/There’s a weird belief – here in the Bay Area, certainly, but likely elsewhere as well (if our friends are to be believed) that in America, primary residences are the best investments that many people have made. For the vast majority of Americans in the vast majority of time periods, that is absolutely not the case. That’s right – with very few exceptions comprising limited time frames in certain metro areas near Washington, D.C. and in California – the change you lose in your couch cushions is returning more to you than the home you live in. Your home just really isn’t a good investment.
