For decades, bonds have been considered a safe investment option. And while this may be true in the United States, experts say there is an even better option—real estate.
The problem with bonds, according to experts, is that they consistently produce at a rate of 1.62% on a 10-year U.S. bond. This isn’t enough for someone looking for a fixed income. And what’s worse, in foreign markets, is that bonds have yielded negative results, and some experts speculate that the same could happen in the United States.
Real estate, however, offers a steady investment that can provide an income. And, with interest rates staying so low for so long, the risk in real estate is extremely low. Even when the market is volatile, real estate consistently performs inversely to this trend.

When considering a domestic investment that offers minimal risk and potential for high yields, real estate is the way to go.
