I am single in my mid 30s and have about 600k in my stock portfolio. I have always wanted to buy a property for myself and not have to worry about paying rent or monthly mortgage. The reason I started investing in stocks was only because I wanted to buy my home in cash because I have always wanted to live a rent-free and debt-free life. I am thinking of selling 500k of my stock and buy a 1 or 2 bed room apartment to live in. (I don't care about capital growth or anything like that as I am looking for a place to live in for the next 10 or so years.) However, now that I have enough cash to buy a property I want, I am not sure if it will be a wise decision to sell 90% of my stock and to buy a property in cash to live in. what do you guys all think?
