Reversion to the mean

 

It’s one of the most predictable trends in the investing world- “reversion to the mean.” Remember the dot-com boom? Those stocks took off, right?

Naturally, tech stocks soon fell back to earth. But people forget that the NASDAQ did eventually recover and grow again.

Markets are like that. And we believe real estate is no different.

The problem they target has gone unnoticed for years. In 1974, Congres passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) to set guidelines for plan sponsors when structuring a retirement plan. Theoretically, ERISA did its job; in practice it failed.
