Personally, I would not invest in real estate, other than for my primary residence....

For us, our single best investment was a chunk of bare land. And we recently purchased a house to use as a vacation rental that, between appreciation and rental income, will probably be at least as good. Real estate is also probably the investment we know the most about.
