3 Key Points:

  1. The U.S. currently has a low inventory in terms of its households which mitigates some downturns. Thus, residential real estate is actually a good hedge against this inflation
  2. In the current inflationary environment, it’s best to diversify your money by having investments in real estate, hedge funds, and/or having cash itself as your asset.
  3. Doing your due diligence can be a step to starting your own firm. Another thing that can help encourage you to take the plunge is the support from the people around you.
