Housing Stocks

Housing StocksSince the mid-2000s and sub-prime mortgage rate crisis, real estate has suffered tremendously. However, very recently, the housing market has started to make a comeback, which is a great sign for both the economy and investors. While this may be a good time to purchase property, it is also a great time to invest in housing stocks. Housing stocks that show promise include KB Homes (NYSE:KBH) and The Ryland Group (NYSE:RYL) as both companies look to start building homes as the market rebounds. Other ways to play the housing market is through REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) like the Vanguard REIT ETF (NYSEARCA:VNQ).
