No one’s talking about one of the most interesting developments in real estate this year.
And it’s not the plummeting home prices, or the spike in foreclosures.
Your home could lose half its value this year – since January 2007, countless have. And like many Americans who’ve seen their biggest asset depreciate, you’ve been completely defenseless, unable to stop it.
But that’s about to change.
I’m not suggesting the freefall in prices will stop. The latest reading of the S&P/Case-Shiller Composite 10 House Price Index makes it impossible to advance such an argument. (It’s dropped for the twenty-fifth consecutive month.) Instead, I’m telling you we’ll finally have a way to profit from retreating prices.
In other words, we can finally hedge home value in one simple step – through the use of exchange traded funds or ETFs.
