Dollar-Euro Exchange Rate Reaches Parity



Why is it the best time to invest?

Dollar-Euro exchange rate reaches parity

For the first time in 20 years.



The Euro and Dollar Are Equal for the First Time in 20 Years. The dollar has been rising in large part because the Federal Reserve is on track to increase interest rates faster than other major countries. Europe is currently dealing with high inflation and high energy prices along with the Federal Government aggressively raising interest rates to help bring inflation under control.  This is not only good news for travel lovers but also the best time for Real Estate Investors and second home buyers to get more for their money. The fact that the dollar is so much stronger today against the euro should serve as welcome relief for Americans heading to Europe.
