Housing stocks are taking a beating this year as the housing market turns over. While some investors are fleeing the real estate sector altogether – Toll Brothers Inc. (NYSE: TOL) is down over 30% this year – that could be a huge mistake.
The reality is there's a tremendous opportunity in real estate right now, and the high priests of conventional wisdom on Wall Street are telling you to avoid it.
But conventional wisdom gets you conventional returns. That's why we dig into the numbers, analyze every industry, and find the most profitable investments others are overlooking.
We aren't talking about any sort of short selling or options plays on falling stocks either. There's certainly nothing wrong with making a quick buck on a trade, but we're talking about investing in a sector others are writing off.
And making a killing in the process, thanks to a real estate investment that's crushing the stock market's returns…
The Real Estate Market Is Still Minting Millionaires
You've probably read all about the doom and gloom surrounding the housing market.
Rising interest rates are making home buying more expensive. Fixed-rate 30-year mortgages are charging more than 5% interest for the first time since 2010.
Billions Are Now in Play: Millions of Americans could collect "Federal Rent Checks" – to learn how to claim your portion of an $11.1 billion money pool using this backdoor investment, click here now…
Mortgage applications fell 5% last week, tumbling to a four-year low.
Housing starts have plummeted 10% this year, hitting a three-year low.
The median home price is down 7% since the start of the year. Redfin Corp. (NASDAQ: RDFN) reported 25% of home sellers cut their asking price in September.
Of course, Wall Street has taken notice and absolutely pounded housing stocks…
This might sound like a bad time to invest in real estate, but think again. If you look at it a little differently, you'll see it's actually an incredible opportunity.
And I'm not even talking about buying housing stocks at a discount, though you can certainly do that right now too.
William Lyon Homes and M/I Homes are both active in one sector of the housing market with booming potential. They both specialize in first-time home buyers or upgraders, which could be the next growth industry as younger millennials flee cities for the suburbs. Both companies have excellent financial strength too, so they're poised to break out the second the market realizes their potential.
But I want to talk to you today about a different, and far more lucrative, way of investing in the real estate market.
If you'd used this method of real estate investing over 40 years (that's about how long most people will save for retirement), you'd have crushed the stock market's return.
Plus, this method doesn't require you to talk to any real estate agents or learn how to flip houses, either.
It's as simple as buying the right real estate investment trust (REIT). These equities are known for their cash-rich dividends, but they also routinely outperform stocks, even with rising interest rates.
And the one we're watching right now blows housing stocks out of the water…
