Obviously to each their own, but I prefer stocks to real estate. Forget about property value...just seems like more of a hassle. How many hours a week does it take you to manage 9 properties? Did it cost a lot to start them up? Have you had major repairs yet?

To me, wealth is the freedom to do what you want to do with your time. Maybe if you had $40k/year to withdraw you couldn't do quite as much as you want. To me, that would be worth it just so I wouldn't have to do a bunch of things I didn't want to do.

But for me investing is a lot of fun, so that's a large part of it.

Whatever the case, good luck on your quest!
