Some investors prefer real estate because they say it feels more tangible than stocks.
After the nation’s financial crisis, Leslye Schiff decided she had had enough of the highs and lows of the stock market and pulled her money out. Instead, she rolled the money she had in her traditional individual retirement account into a Roth IRA and changed her investment strategy.
When her husband Rob left his job a couple of years ago, he rolled over his 401(k) funds into a Roth IRA as well. Now both of them are actively making their retirement dollars work for them through various types of real estate-related investments.
