mOrning, I'm new on this forum and my business partners and I are ready to do some investing. We want to take equity out of our office and property, say, $150,000 and the question being is it better to put it into the stock market thru our investment broker or find real estate. At this time we are new to real estate investments and would have to learn about it before walking down that path. Several of us already use the investment broker for our personal investments and have done reasonably well. What is the advantages and disadvantages of these options. Anybody have any ideas?
