Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Diversify!!!
Consider Investing in a rental property in addition to the stock market.
There is no doubt that you have seen some significant returns over the last decade investing in the stock market. However, we have all witnessed many years of very low or negative returns on the stock market as well. Those are the years that stress and anxiety sets in. Why not consider buying a rental property where you can achieve significant returns over a 20 plus year period with very little risk. Build equity two ways, firstly your property value goes up by roughly 6% annually and secondly your tenants pay down the principal on your mortgage. In addition, there has never been a better time to borrow for an investment property. We are seeing potentially the lowest interest rates in our lifetime.
