International Investments - Be Thankful that Real Estate Fights Inflation

By Gary Scott

Fears of US inflation has sent emerging markets reeling. In just the last month my portfolio (you’ll see in tomorrow’s message) is down 4.6% in a month. This seems like a big drop at first glance. However, this does not account part of our real estate holdings, which we calculate as being worth $1 million + in our portfolio. Recently a neighbor placed his smaller farm (with far less construction on the land) on the market for 3.36 million, an unheard of amount in this area. Merri and I are really thankful for this farm!

What inflation takes, inflation gives back in other ways….if you have a balanced portfolio! Stay tuned for more about how to do this in upcoming messages.

Trey also sent some listings of property for sale here near our farm here in Ashe County. What makes the opportunity so special is that the market is most unsettled. Similar properties often carry very different prices. Trey recently showed two similar farms for sale. One was asking $5,000 an acre, the other $15,000 an acre.

We love living here but it has created such abundance as well, and we bought here bought with no thought of making money.

Here are two listings from Trey that I consider really well priced.

Priced to sell by motivated seller, this 2 bedroom 2 bath home is close to Jefferson. Recent additions added spacious family space and storage. Extra rooms could be used as bedrooms. Beautiful landscaped yard and airy porches and decks to enjoy. This home is priced at only $62/sq. ft., and is a great home for families or seasonal residents. Large variety of plants and shrubs around property. Many recent upgrades, and the older wing of the home has been completely refinished by current owners. Large bonus room in basement with a hand laid ceramic mosaic floor. $124,000.

Or… Wonderful view of the river with easy access in this two bedroom 1 bath home with a 3rd bedrooms upstairs not counted due to low ceiling height. Close to schools, bank, restaurant, and post office for $125,000.
