Hmmmm. When I "designed" the two assets above, I was thinking about aYou've got me wrong. Asset 1 has a net increase in wealth of 900 per
month, so it's a true income-producing asset. Asset 2 is a loss-producing
asset, much like owning a house is for some people (it increases in
capital value gradually, so adding to your wealth, but drains your income
at a faster rate).
Besides, something like Asset 1 looks like the sort of asset that you
could leave alone and skim off the profits to buy more assets. Let your
money work for you, rather than you having to work for your money!
*house* for asset (1) - I know for sure mine has gone up in value over the
past 3 years at more than I've paid into it!
[For you to be "skimming off the profits" from the asset1 house, I guess
you'd be increasing your mortgage amount - is that what you meant??]
