Although the rental experience was a good one, I would have been just as well off financially to have sold the house just after I inherited it and invested the proceeds conservatively.

When the stock market is returning 8% a year, the steady income from a rental might not seem so exciting. But if the stock market continues to go sideways, the steady income will seem a lot more atractive to people.
