The main benefit of real estate over paper assets in my opinion is CONTROL.
You can fix up a house or building and make it better condition. You can raise rents. You can treat tenants differently to make them stay longer and pay more. Etc.
You can’t do that with stocks, bonds, or annuities. Pretty much you take what you can get in those markets.
