<<I cannot spend my house. It is an illiquid asset...>>
Nor can you "spend" a stock, at least without selling it.
It's actually remarkably easy to sell a few shares of a large block of stock if you need income. It's much harder to sell a few shingles or a plumbing fixture if you're looking to generate income from your home.
