Point well taken . . . I should have mentioned long term returns . . . done right and without emotions ~10% return long term is very doable . . . true for me over the last nearly 30 year period - which inclued all the modern day downturns.

As far as taking out home equity to fund long term investments - I call that DUMB! Funding long term investments with relatively short term loans . . . well you get the picture . . . I like such folks - they are what allows the rest of us to make the ~10% returns!
