I am a risk-averse person and I usually keep most of my money in my bank account because I don't care for riskier options which might get me a little extra. During recent events and instabilities in the stock markets I heard from several sides that a massive currency devaluation (I am in the Euro-zone) might happen this year.
How do I secure my financial resources before such a devaluation happens? Investing into real estate seems to be a good option. Not for increasing my resources, but to safe them in case a big crash renders money "worthless". A house or a parcel of land will always be worth something. Or are there any better options? I am thinking long term here, because I am aware, that I cannot sell a house or a parcel of land as fast as I can sell gold.
If you think I am too afraid and such a scenario is very unlikely, I would also be interested in the reasoning behind that.
