Consider rental properties (duplexes, triplexes, small apartment complexes w/o amenities for upkeep — e.g. pools).

Owning rentals really only make sense if you are putting in "sweat equity", managing rent and repairs (even just coordinating the repairman, and take advantage of the tax benefits. If you are paying a real estate agent to find the property and a manager to manage it, I would just look at a passive real estate investment vehicle. The fees are much higher than index funds but it is a form of diversification.
