Our total assets are 75% equities, bonds and cash, and 25% real estate.

The real estate is our primary residence, paid-in-full and in a neighborhood/city/region that's pretty solid.

Reading Bernstein, et al., and looking to do some reallocation juggling at the turn of the new year, do I now want to consider a new allocation to REITs?

I understand that REITs are an entirely different market segment than our primary residence. I understand also that REITs are pricey right now.

Nevertheless, do I want to consider moving to what might be a total allocation of 30%, say, to real estate? TIA.
