    I completely agree that a hybrid approach is a great way to go about it. Everyone needs to decide what is best for them but stock market and real estate investing are not mutually exclusive.

    My financial plan calls for 41% savings rate with 1/3 going to debt pay down, 1/3 to stock market, and 1/3 to active real estate investing in cash flowing rentals (10% cash on cash properties)

    Diversification is always beneficial. So it never makes sense when people argue against diversification with stock and real estate investing. It’s not necessary for all but definitely is a great strategy in my opinion. I look at REI as an accelerant to wealth building and smart index fund investing as the foundation builder.
