In Stocks vs. Real Estate, I compare which asset class is best suited for which type of person to make the most amount of money. My preference is for real estate due to its tangibility, income, utility, and one’s ability to improve the asset class. As a real estate owner, there’s a correlation between effort and reward. Whereas with stocks, you are a minority shareholder with no say in the business.
I’m someone who always likes to take action. Thus, I feel helpless when a CEO like Carly Fiorina decides to overpay for Compaq and in the process blows up Hewlett Packard. After all, Packard once said, “More companies die from indigestion than of starvation.” At least Carly got a multi-million dollar severance package.
In this article, I’d like to compare making money in real estate versus making money online. I’ve been a real estate investor since 2003 and started my site in 2009. At the present time, I’m fortunate that both asset classes are healthy income engines.
