I'm curious how this investment in real estate compares to other asset types, instead of the lowest common denominator.
One way to evaluate investments is to use the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). This is beyond the scope of this course. However, CAPM leads to a view that one should invest some of your wealth in a risk-free asset and the rest in a diversified "market portfolio." The latter would include a diversified portfolio of real estate, but not buying your own home.
