Bankrateasked Americans to answer the following question:
“Which would be the best way to invest money you did not need for more than 10 years?”

Sterling White, co-founder of Holdfolio, gave one reason as to why real estate may have ranked so high.
"Houses are tangible. You can physically see and feel the product. So you know where your money is going."
July’s poll alsofoundthat for the“26th consecutive month, Americans’ sense of financial well-being improved when taking into account debt, savings, net worth, job security, and overall financial situation.”
