I really don’t have too much time to spend on the blog today. Wall to wall appointments. But when I saw Jeff Brown had posted a post titled My 4% Will Beat Your 10% Any Day – Stocks vs. Real Estate I thought I would have to point you in that direction.
In fact, Jeff is in the habit of handing out Bawldy awards to the best posts of the day. I want to urge Jeff to give himself one.
My opinion? I can’t agree with Jeff any more than I do. To me it’s a moot point, anyway. I don’t have the cash it takes to play in “the market.” But I do have the ability to get 5% down, buy a place and let someone else pay for it. Rental homes to sell when I’m older that I didn’t pay for. Just seems like a good idea to me.
