Short The Dollar. Buy Real Estate with Loans and Short the Dollar.

Short the dollar! Todd and Oana talk about something Warren Buffet said years ago about shorting the dollar by purchasing real estate with loans. Buying a home with low interest loans is also a great way to beat inflation since it is entirely possible that real estate could appreciate faster than the interest rate on the loans used to purchase the real estate.

Shorting the US dollar with the housing market is different than actually shorting the housing market as described in the movie “The Big Short”. In that movie they actually bought was essentially “reverse insurance” on the housing market, meaning they would get paid a lot of money if loans backed by homes failed, and the banks would keep the money if the loans didn’t fail.
