Question Inflation, Economy Question?

I'll make this short.

If inflation gets out of control, precious metals go up but what happens to real estate?

In a true economy, in an inflationary environment, the price of real estate would rise relative to the increase in the overall price of goods and services.

We don't currently have a true economy, so who knows.

Inflation results in higher interest rates which means you can afford less house or financing becomes less attractive. Prices fall if not collapse.
