You do know that there will be a stock market crash in less than 2 years right?? Check the inverted yield curve. Stocks are more volatile than property. The good thing is that you don't have to choose. Huku Kenya you can't truly retire without rental income. Don't write off real estate entirely in favor of stocks. Stocks can double and halve in a year so a balanced portfolio of both stocks and property would minimize risk e.g a balanced portfolio of 70% property and 30% stocks.
Yes everyone’s talking about the inverted yield curve but I choose to listen to seasoned experts who think the phenomenon has been overblown. This time it’s different. Also remember that after the crash in 08, the market corrected just 2 years later followed by the best bull run in a long while. Alot of people who pulled out missed that. If (big IF) the market “crashes,” it shall rebound faster than the amount of time it takes to recoup a rental investment. I’m not writing off kenyan rentals entirely but I would limit it to 30% max of my portfolio.
