If you only have a million $ and you are allowed only 2 choices:
1) To buy a rental property to collect rent.
2) To invest in equity to collect dividends.
Which one would you choose and why?
My esteemed reader temperament asked this question and I think this can be a fun exercise to see what others think.
I believe most people would say:
a) It depends…
b) How can buy either at current prices?
c) Can choose half/half?
d) And other “wu liao” (silly) questions…
To make this exercise more interesting and clearer, let’s imagine a genie pops up with a gift of a million $ to you. The condition is you have to make a decision right here right now in 1 minute – either buy a rental property or invest in dividend stocks. Failing with, the genie disappears with the million $.
OK, own time own target.
