if you own land, that's pretty damn recession proof.


You can find land in almost any area that is not worth what it was a decade ago. I should know, I own some of it!

In many instances, land value has declined dramatically since 2006-7.

How "diverse" is your portfolio?

Do you own real estate?

I know but if you have crops/timber, you have growth nonetheless

No significant preference other than very careful attention to value/valuation and carry costs. For the average investor, aside from a personal residence, REITs are a good vehicle.

My holdings are single-family -- personal homes, and commercial. Through REITs, multi-family exposure as well.
