Real estate to diversify away from (I’m assuming) your portfolio of equities/bonds?

like

Many, many years. Timing is less relevant than the value you can create, again, if you’re looking for opportunistic yields. If your risk tolerance is a bit lower, you want something stable, the location is going to be more important than the timing also. You being a novice investor are likely never going to see a real distressed deal in this cycle. If you’re an aggressive son of a gun, diligently watch the FHA loan performance data. Not the trends, but the property level/loan level data.

Invest in a fund that’s concentrated and I am assuming you don’t need the money for atleast a few years... I have been doing the same with Titan Invest... it’s built like a hedge fund but for retail investors

Safe to assume longer term? Comfortable with all equity, or looking for balance? Assuming long term and all equity, I’m a fan of JCAPX and FDG right now if not buying individual securities. Tech overweight, and not so many holdings performance (and risk) won’t be watered down by too many names that can’t move the needle. Would also consider dollR cost averaging - investing in these weekly at least through the election, and not all at once. Can accelerate if see a big pull back, but still benefit from current momentum.

Why not just QQQ? I’m curious how can you do IRA and 401k?

We do a backdoor Roth since we are above the income limit to qualify for a Roth IRA

My wife and I would like to retire at age 50 (or earlier). We’re in our early 30s. We’ve been maxing out 401ks and IRAs for years and started contributing 20k a year into a taxable account to start filling the gap since we can’t access 401k until 55. At what point should we be reducing 401k/IRAs and redirecting to the taxable account? Otherwise our income balloons late in life. Curious how others are managing this.

An unvaccinated person has a higher likelihood of catching and spreading Covid to others because they are cowards who care only about themselves. You are harming other people.
