I stay away from REITs, even though I don't view them as being comparable to the investment I have in my primary or secondary residences. Realistically speaking, I don't seen how many folks (myself included) can consistently beat the SP500. I own several diversified Vanguard funds, so I'm not soley in the SP500, but I'm 90% or more in mid and large cap stocks, with a bit of concentration in drugs and technology. I retired at 49 by following this gameplan, and I intend to stick with the horse that brought me to financial independence.
