One thing to be very careful about is the difference between the average returns and their variability. If you plan to pay the mortgage with cash flow from the investment then you are taking a risk. The so-called safe withdrawal rate is 4% (see the Retire Early Home Page discussion board here at the Fool and http://www.retireearlyhomepage.com/ for details).

Actually, that link is NOT to a fool board. You shouldn't say it is when it isn't!
