Inflation: Where'd My Money Go?!

Updated: Jan 25, 2022

I’m sure we’ve all seen and heard the rampant effects of inflation currently gripping our financial system. With the sins committed in monetary policy throughout the pandemic, Ray Dalio’s ‘Cash is Trash’ mantra appears truer now more than ever. Your hard-earned dollars in the bank are rapidly being eroded away like sandcastles in the surf. To be fiscally responsible, we’re all now tasked with finding a SAFE return for that capital just to keep up.

A great perspective and strategy on the matter is that Real Estate doesn’t go up in value, it is simply a peg against inflation. In 10 years, the price of a property will cost more dollars, yet it will still cost the same amount of Whoppers/Impossible Burgers. It gets exciting when you can use Real Estate to leverage large sums of money against that inflation and have a tenant pay the monthly tab. Securing cash flowing assets in growing markets financed with debt at sub 4.0% interest rates is arguably the best hedge available in these inflationary times.
