Buy a rental? Even though I can afford to pay cash for a large one, I don't even own my home. As long as I can find a comfortable apartment with a pool and a tennis court for $600/mo, there's no reason to accept the burdens and hassles of owning real estate.

A widely diversified portfolio of stocks and bonds is a lot less risky than having a sizable portion of your net worth in a single piece of real estate.
