Real Estate Seen as the Top Investment for 2014

In an article by Bloomberg, it was reported that “U.S. millionaires see real estate as the top alternative-asset class to own this year”.

In an article published by Bloomberg describing a finding by Morgan Stanley’s wealth-management unit, it was reported that  The team found that 77% of investors that have at least $1 million in assets own real estate. In the survey released amongst investors, the teams asked what the top alternative-investment picks were for 2014. What investment claimed the top of the list? Direct ownership of residential and commercial properties. 33% of the surveyed millionaires stated they planned to buy property this year. 23% of the investors claimed intentions to invest in real estate investment trusts, the second-most popular choice.

The U.S.  real estate market is attracting wealthy investors since it has been on the rebound for a while now, as currently fixed-income yields are very low whereas equities are soaring. Also contributing to the increase in domestic investment is the rise in foreign investment in U.S. major cities. As foreign investors allocate their money in the U.S., competition spawns which in turn drives prices up.
