Maybe option 3 could be to buy some investment properties and become a landlord living off of rental income.

When I had that brilliant idea, my lawyer asked me if I was prepared to become the most despised person in the world. And if I had the temperament to deal with the financial deadbeats that I would be doing business with. The most on-target description of the people you will be renting to came from another RE investor/landlord: "People who have never had $500 all at the same time in their entire life."

Being a landlord is more accurately described as a job than an investment.
