It sounds like you have all your eggs in one basket, and by comparison to marketable securities, a fairly illiquid bunch of eggs at that. If this is all you have for retirement I would sell as soon as practical. You will relieve yourself of the carrying charges adn upkeep and be able to invest in something with more liquidity. I once owned (with others) about 45 apartments. They nearly put me under when the values shifted and I couldn't keep them rented. I got out by the skin of my teeth. I think there are people who can make money on singles and doubles but it means doing a lot of the work yourself and there is always the question of the value shifting or interest rates going up making it difficult to sell. Since I have moved into stocks I sleep much better. Just my $.02.
