Been around hundreds of years but Who am I

We hear so much so often from so many experts about Real Estate / Housing Prices.

Here’s a “Who am I?” to help keep it in perspective.

I am the basis of all wealth, the heritage of the wise the thrifty and the prudent.

I am the poor man’s joy and comfort, the rich man’s price, the right hand of capital and the silent partner of many thousands of successful men.

I am the solace of the widow, the comfort of old age and the cornerstone of security against misfortune and want.

I am handed down to children through generations, as a thing of great worth.

I am the choicest fruit of toil, credit respects me, yet I am humble.

I stand before every man bidding him to know me for what I am and possess me.

I grow and increase in value through countless days.

Though I seem dormant, my worth increases, never failing, never ceasing. Time is my aid and population heaps up my gain.

Fire and the elements I defy, for they cannot destroy me.

My possessors learn to believe in me; invariably they become envied.

While all things wither and decay, I survive.

The centuries find me younger, increasing in my strength.

I am the foundation of banks, the producer of foods and the basis of all wealth throughout the world.

Yet I am so common that thousands, unthinkingly and unknowingly pass me by.
