Have you ever noticed that regardless of which particular industry caused a nation to prosper at any given time, the wealth of a nation always ends up sitting in its residential properties? It has been estimated that around 70% of an industrial nation’s wealth exists within its residential properties. You can test this yourself, by looking around at 10 of your friends and family and see where their wealth is. You will quickly discover that the majority of their wealth is in their home, regardless of what line of work they do. History reveals you will see new industries come and go, in cycles of boom and bust, but the wealth left behind those industries tends to stay in residential properties.
