"I have far more faith in the housing market because when the dust settles, owning your own home is still and always will be the American dream."
-- Deborah D., Indiana
"Right now, I'd definitely put my money in the stock market instead of real estate. The real estate market will take at least a couple of years to get back to normal."
-- Kurk R., California
"A house is a place to live not an investment. After subtracting realtor commissions, property taxes, insurance, and upkeep you are lucky to break even over time. The stock market will over the long term appreciate nicely. I can also convert all of my stock holding to cash in a matter of seconds. Try doing that with your house."
-- Paul S., Iowa
"Neither. The economy looks terrible right now and the dollar has been on the decline for years. Americans are in more debt than ever. It is time to save, stop spending and be more conservative and cautious."
-- Stephanie E., Virginia
"The housing market already got its rise a couple years ago and then re-cycled down. Now it’s the stocks that are going up and they are not ready to re-cycle at this time. However, just like the seasons, things change. The housing is on the cusp! It will probably be at least 11/2-2 years before it returns. Good buying opportunity if you want to wait that long."
-- Lawrence K., Florida
