Lightbulb FAQ - Are real estate investments a sufficient retirement strategy?

November 4, 2005: 2:25 PM EST

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - I'm single and make about $80,000 a year. I own a home that's worth about $550,000, which is more than $100,000 than I paid for it, and I've just used $60,000 I previously had invested in a diversified portfolio of stock mutual funds in an IRA rollover to buy a $140,000 vacation home in Arizona that is now valued at $190,000. My question is, should I continue with this investment strategy for retirement or do something different?
