  • How much is good enough?

    Hello all,

    There could be similar posts but I would like to know from fellow members in RE what should be the limit of investment that one can do to feel financial freedom.

    I know for most it will be owning a house and for a few it could be owning a township depending on the income/salary level.

    I still see young people working in call centres investing in RE as pure investment.
    There are couples (DINK-double income no kids) who are investing in RE for self stay.
    Then there are HNI and NRIs who are investing in RE.

    SO when does one feel free and happy. tough and easy one.

    Are you asking how much net worth (in all forms of asset classes ) should one have to get a sense of financial freedom or how much property shud one have?

      My current prescription (for self) is 30% RE,30% stocks, 30% bonds and 10% g o l d.

      Except for g o l d, all my other investments fit into this broad outline. I have very little g o l d(neither physical g o l d nor e-g o l d)

      In the past it was 50% stocks and 50% bonds. I was totally against g o l d and RE. I changed my strategy in early 2009, after seeing how the economic crisis played out (although I lost nothing - except opportunity lost :-)

          I had intended to ask only abt RE but seemed an incomplete query, hence i would like to know abt your views on complete portfolio net worth.
