My wife and I have had an ongoing debate about the merits of investing in the two markets. She favours property (although the only property investment we have is freehold ownership of the house we occupy) and I favour shares where we presently have a 5-10 year savings plan plus various superannuation plans that provide flexibility in being able to swap to different investment areas.

My wife is keen on negative gearing a unit or house, but I would rather stick with the share market.

I would welcome comments from your personal experience as to whether, over the recent 5-10 year period, property or shares has provided the greatest return for a private investor.
