Rent vs Buy in the Era of High Mortgage Rates

.

You enjoy such (frequent?) rebalancing of asset allocation? So far, I didn’t sell any index funds or RE or AAPL holdings. What I do is pump AAPL dividends + opportunistic cash-out refi of existing properties into RE.

Yeah thats why its probably wise to keep some cash (like 10% of NW) for the next year or so as the economy recovers from the historical roller coaster ride it had. You never know where stocks, bonds and RE are headed but you know for sure that cash will yield 2-3% return and will not fall nominally. And who knows where the next best opportunities will appear so better to be prepared.

U.S. home prices (including distressed sales) increased 18.3% year over year in June 2022, compared to June 2021. On a month-over-month basis, home prices increased by 0.6% compared to May 2022 .

Annual U.S. home price gains are forecast to slow to 4.3% by June 2023.

So if you wait a year, house price will only go up by 4% compared to now.
