You have got to be kidding. Don't you know that the stock market and real estate market are tied together. Look what happened in 1987 when the stock market crashed. The real estate market went into a swift downturn and it took 10 years to recover while the market recovered in less than a year. Real estate is a headache except for ones home. I can sell a stock in less than one minute while it can take years to sell a piece of property. Real estate requires maitenance, tenants who may trash the property and the payment of real estate taxes.
