3/3. I would have to disagree with saraedavila. Sure, real-estate is a great investment at times like these when one can buy twice as much for half the price (that’s an option for those few who have the funds to do it), but overall real estate’s returns are lower than that of a well diversified portfolio. Total returns for the S&P 500 from 1926 to 2007 averaged 10.37% a year. Plus, there are a lot of funky mortgages out there with people chasing the interest rate only and forgetting about the closing costs, total time in debt, and the total cost of their mortgage

Wow! I'm surprised Indianapolis won over Youngstown. Then again, Indianapolis kind of is in the middle of nowhere.

Even in these scary economic times a home is still probably the best investment and return on your money that you will ever make.
