For me, even after paying off a mortgage because of today's ZIRP environment, I calculate conservatively about a 4.5% return (including outside management). Obviously everyone makes their own decision, but that to me is worth replacing some of my bonds with an investment that will increase in net return AND if inflation hits, increase in principle.

Was the question of what investment this rental is replacing raised before this ? REITs are a passive real estate investment if the point is to diversify. I appreciated the above post because it gave me a bit of pause-are my rentals performing as well as alternate investments ?
