US Home Price Growth by Decade...
From 1891-1996, US home prices only exceeded inflation by 15% on a cumulative basis. Few considered housing “an investment.”

That thinking changed during the housing bubble when prices exceeded the inflation rate by 76% from 1997-2005...
Then housing prices crashed, -27% nationally from 2006 peak to 2012 trough and once again few considered housing an investment.

But the subsequent rally off the 2012 lows (+54%) has been so strong relative to inflation that we're hearing "housing is a great investment" again.
