Congratulations AJ and thanks for sharing your asset allocation.

It has made me come out of lurker mode for my first post. We are a one income family too and as the SAHM I'm trying to pull my weight by trying to LBYM and save as much as we can on a comfortable but not extravagant lifestyle. I'm intrigued by your equity in commercial property.

How did that come about and how did you do to build it up?

Most of our equity is in our primary residence and while this gives me a peace of mind I need I now feel its time to build up our other asset classes. Since investing in our home has proved successfull in the sense that I seem to enjoy my debt going down as fast as possible I feel comfortable with property now in a way I would not have thought five years ago. Hence we are thinking of acquiring more property.

Best Regards,
