So I have a long term business associate that has been very successful over the years. However, he, like many Americans, went nuts during the housing boom. Now a large chunk of his assets are tied up in real estate. He's trying, to varying degrees of success, to sell the properties off. Personally, I love liquidity and, beyond my personal residence and acreage, haven't really dabbled that much in real estate. Maybe I should, I don't know. Has anyone gotten too involved in properties? How did you get out? Any lessons learned?
