Buying A Home Safer Bet Than Gold

The results of a biannual survey, released this week by real estate search and marketing portal Trulia, found that 80 percent of homeowners plan to buy another home, and that most survey participants view homeownership, and placing money in retirement account, as the best long-term investments. Market research firm Harris Interactive  conducted the survey, which drew responses from 1,392 homeowners and 758 renters, from Aug. 30,  2011, to Sept. 1, 2011.
