I also live in the bay area, retired, and have a couple of rentals paid off.
SS, plus, rental income, and investment income, makes life very comfortable. If you were able to manage your rentals, you could increase your cash flow.
One benefit of rentals, rents are usually stable and adjust with inflation.
Just be sure the local economy is good. (In the past, Las Vegas, has had
it's ups and down).
As you know, in the bay area, if you have rental properties, close to
schools, (Stanford, USF, Berkley;
good jobs, silicon valley,) rents are
very good, as well as appreciation in real estate.
You might want to "trade" your 2 Vegas properties for one in the Bay
Area, if you plan to retire here. By trading, you defer any gains.
