Good ole' Mazske:The big question is, does anyone who is smarter than I, all of you, think I'll make more money by buying some rental properties than I would if I stuck with stocks?I think that the downside of diversifying your stocks holdings with real estate is essentially nil and the payoff is potentially large. The diversification benefit provided by real estate is substantial when compared to stocks. If the market has a dismal 20 years you will at least have real estate batting for you. If the market takes off real estate will likely not do as well, but it won't hurt your overall return too much compared to the piece of mind it will bring. Even if the market is 20X higher 20 years from now there are bound to be times when it drops in half over the course of a year. You will be a lot happier with a real estate investment at that point.Maybe you could buy your first place and then use the income from that towards more real estate and keep saving for stocks also. There are lots of possibilities...st
