When is the right time to invest in real estate or shares? Ask a stockbroker or real estate agent and the answer is almost always ‘right now’, even if it’s US tech stocks in 1999 or Melbourne real estate in the late 1880s.
How so? ‘It’s all about time in the market’ answers the spruiker. Even if you buy at the top, invest for long enough and time will dig you out of the hole. Ergo, it’s always a good time to invest.
