I am interested in using TIPS as a good chunk of our AA once we finally sell out on our RE holdings.
Can anyone give the pros and cons on holding TIP funds (the way I am leaning as of now) vs. actually holding the bonds directly (which sounds more complicated to me).
To further clarify, I like using Vanguard so that is the fund I would use (VAIPX) and would be using this as a good part of our income stream.
Thanks for the help!
Edit: I re-posted this question under a new topic (TIPS: Bond vs. Bond FUND? Pros/Cons)
Please respond there to this question. Thanks!
