Betting On Your House Or The Market

This New York Times article from last week relays that despite real estate's outperformance over the past five years, the better long-term investment has been the stock market by a wide margin.

"In fact, by a wide margin over time, stock prices have risen more quickly than home values, even on the East and West Coasts, where home values have appreciated most. . . . Since 1980, for example, money invested in the Standard & Poor's 500 has delivered a return of 10 percent a year on average. Including dividends, the return on the S.& P. 500 rises to 12 percent a year. Even in New York and San Francisco, homes have risen in value only about 7 percent a year over the same span."
