This depends on factors like your cash flow capacity, risk tolerance, and goals & objectives. Over the long term, residential property and shares have shown similar capital growth. But in the short term, shares show greater price volatility.
Advantages of shares include being more liquid, and therefore easier to sell quickly if required; they also have lower stamp duty and selling fees.
Advantages of property include greater capacity to fund the investment from banks, and predictable income through the rent and substantial depreciation allowances for new property. This means that for most people a new property can be easily affordable, after tax, and they can own an investment property without too much impact on their lifestyle.
