Shifting My Focus to Real Estate

My stock portfolio has now appreciated to 30% of my investment assets.

A few weeks ago I made my first trades since March, selling almost half of my BAC stock and putting that money into the broad Vanguard Total Market fund (VTI). The market has declined since then. Good for my sale of BAC, but bad for my other stock.

I expect the stock market to be a good (but not great) place to be in the next few years, so I will leave my money in the market for a while.

The time has come to buy real estate again. So, now I am buying bank-owned properties during this time of low prices.

Real estate is now 40% of my investment assets.
Cash is the remaining 30%.
