Atlanta Real Estate is Attractive Asset

Dr. Marc Faber
 The housing market in the south of the United States is among the most attractive asset classes in the world, Marc Faber, the editor of the Gloom Boom and Doom Report, told CNBC on Friday, because while homebuilder stocks had rallied, property prices hadn`t moved much.

"If you look at the supply of homes, new construction, and you compare it to immigration into the United States, to the growth of the population, then these (southern) markets are very attractive from a longer term perspective," Faber told Bernie Lo on CNBC`s Straight Talk.
Among the markets he pointed to were Atlanta, Phoenix and Miami. Faber said investors could earn a rental yield of 8% per year and buy homes in the south of the US at a 40 to 50% discount to construction costs.

It’s about how a person feels when he walk through the front door — the way he can instantly envision his life unfolding there. This is about more than real estate. It’s about his life and his dreams. It’s important that the agent we choose to guide us through this journey is our trusted expert and advocate.
