It took 816 oz of silver to buy a median 3 bed family home in the USA in 1980 during silver's peak. I totally feel it is not only possible, but probable that we will be able to do that again & for 500 oz or less! There are so many factors now that were not around in 1980's: the Fed's crazy QE strategy, the world-wide market that now can buy silver with a few clicks on their computers, the low remaining above-ground inventory of silver, the manipulation of silver's price by the banks, etc. etc.
The FED is printing so much money than the commodities and precious metals are rising, I think is very likely that a single family home will cost the 500 ounces soon .Nothings lasts forever... The dollar will be gone if inflation continues. What matters is the real value in terms of gold. You wanna buy real estate and the like when it's cheap relative to precious metals, but when the cycle turns and things reaches the floor - and it will -, precious metals will lose its relative value to real estate. That's when you get the cheapest ticket for the next move in the real estate train or stocks train. Always remember Buy low, sell high .Everything is cyclical so you want to sell your silver, or in this case trade in for a cash flowing property, before the precious metals market goes down. That will happen when the USD is restructured or a new reserve currency emerges. Until then, the US is going to print money until they run out of trees... get silver/gold before the average people get wind of what's going on.
