The survey, of 2,000 investors world-wide withinvestible assets of more than 0,000, showed that 75% ofrespondents felt residential real estate looks attractive from aninvestment perspective. Of course, that doesn't mean they arebuying: 60% said tight credit was preventing them from taking theplunge。
About half ofthe respondents expect an increase in the value of theirreal-estate investments over the next two years. Almost 40% ofthose with assets of million or more have greater than 50% of theirportfolio in real estate (so much for lessons learned)。
Perhaps themost interesting part of the survey relates to gender. Almost half(49%) of the women surveyed consider real estate to be a less riskyinvestment than stocks, compared with 37% of men。
Women also aremore likely to enjoy investing in real estate than men: 44% ofwomen surveyed find buying property more enjoyable than investingin other asset classes. Only 28% of men feel the same way. While34% of men are likely to invest in real estate indirectly through afund, only 14% of women would prefer this approach。
I'm going to avoidstereotyping and put the question to readers: Why do you think thatwomen like real estate more then men?
