Inflation is rising higher than we have seen since the 80’s due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prices of nearly everything are rising due to supply chain blockages and global shutdowns, and it’s looking like these trends will continue into the new year. So with inflation continuing to rise, is there anything to do to protect yourself?
Real estate has traditionally been used as a hedge against inflation. This is due to rental income increasing as property values. Property values rise with inflation which means that as inflation rates rise, real estate owners increase their rental income. With the pandemic leading to prices rising for building materials, more people are buying homes that are already built which is great for people who have invested in the real estate market.
Real estate is even available in the metaverse! The scarcity of metaverse real estate means that it is very expensive and is expected to continue growing in popularity in the next few years. While this is still a new venture, it is a possibility for people who are looking to protect themselves from rising inflation. Learn more about real estate and inflation in the infographic below:
