I see his point
My husband and I are opposites when it comes to finances. My husband is all about acquiring assets. He mainly just wants to get rental properties. He has a single family home and a duplex that he rents out. I like to save money and I will occasionally put some in the stock market. The two of us both want a pool though. I proposed that we save up the money and buy it. There, simple and done. My husband wants to get enough assets that what they bring in per month pays for the pool. So it is a lot more rental property buying before the pool. We both have agreed to split the cost. So my husband is doing it his way, I am doing it my way. He has a sign on the fridge that states a pool goal. His two rentals don’t quite bring enough per month to do his half. So he is on the hunt for more real estate. For me, I put money away in an account every month and watch the number grow. I feel my way is more effective. My husband states that I will then be out the money and only have a pool to show for it. For him, he will then have a bunch of rental properties that still make money and are worth money if he ever sells. I see his point. I know I will have my half of the pool faster though. I don’t really care for rental property either. I just want a swimming pool after all.
