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 $.

Clear enough?

OK, own time own target.
