Be wary of relying on real estate as a core investment.

Extremely good advice, short-term as well as long: the real estate market is already extremely overvalued to the point where the amateur speculators are involved, dreaming their flights of fancy and infinitely appreciating returns. It is reminiscent of nothing if not the tech-stocks market in the late 90's: all bubbles burst, and this one is due fairly soon.

A wise person, I forget whom, once said that the four most dangerous words in investing are "this time it's different."
