FMO:Well put. This old post of mine addresses my take on many of the issues you raise:

I thought your post was very well written, and I have some questions that I never made the effort to post when I read it the first time way back when...

Ok, I am not good with my hands. I don't have any desire to improve houses on my spare time. Is real estate still a good option for me? I also don't like dealing with people, especially strangers. Wouldn't I have to do the leg work of finding tenants, etc? I know that you say that your properties don't take much time to maintain, but I don't know if you understand my lack of desire to do these things...

Thanks for taking the time to discuss!
