Other here - income is primarily from rentals, then interest on various loans and Cds (maybe a 1/3 -1/2 the amount of the rents), pretty quick SS income will contribute a dab equal to about 1/3 to 1/2 the interest income (as befits our tiny earned income SS contributions). Down the road we will probably sell off the rentals, which will remove that income stream but generate some stress free cash.
Stocks and bonds? - we have a few, but selling them all would only generate a little over a year's outgo. Big maybe on whether we would put rental property sale proceeds into stocks and bonds.
This community was started in 2002 as an alternative to a then fee only Motley Fool. The focus of the discussions is on topics related to early retirement and financial independence. The community is moderated to ensure a pleasant experience for our members.
