Sven, I think Real Estate is an authentic asset class. Rental incomes are a real thing. Just like bond interest and equity dividends. So one way or the other we all need exposure to more of the authentic asset classes so we stop wasting time on other things. I dont know what the future performance of this particular account will be since I am not an investor and I dont pay too much attention to it. In general, when adding new investments to my portfolio, especially things I dont know much about from experience, I go slow. I want to do something because I want to learn. But I dont want to too much because I dont want too many lessons right away! So if you build up the asset slowly I am sure you will learn and it will grow with you.
