Hello Bruce...

Thanks so much for making that point.

I also am of the similar mindset in that, my commercial property investment, pays 5.9%. Certainly there's risk -- but it's a rather well known national chain, and the tenant owns 15 of the same stores so I sort of believe that by now he's got his business figured out and fires/floods/etc are insured so my risk is that this venerable chain goes under which I highly doubt and if the franchisee went under - there's just so many neighboring competitors, I'm not sure the parent company would just let the place go.

So be it dividends, commercial rent, residential rent........ I show an income of around 5.2% and my SWR will run at 5.4 for awhile.

So I try to keep 4% in mind - - but I pay more attention to the real income I get.
