Are you referring to single family residential or multi-family residential (apartment buildings?)
Hopefully your client is giving you some direction as to his expertise in the field, which you should also have gotten from him on your early conversations. If not I might recommend the stock market, or limited partnerships.

ALL RESIDENTIAL APARTMENTS IN CONDO/COUP'S THAT HAVE TO ANSWER TO ASSOSIATION AND PAY FOR MONTHLY MAINTENANCE ARE VERY ATTRACTIVE IN COAST, BUT VERY RISKI AT THIS TIME. ..YOU BUY NOW AND YOU FACE THE COAST OF HIGH MAINTANANCE (INCLUDING TAX'S AND INSURANCE) FOR THE FACT OF A LOT OF VECANCIES, THE SHARE OF MAINTENANCE IS MUCH HIGER.
BUT NOW IT IS THE PERFECT TIME TO BUY MULTY FAMILY'S FROM DUPLEX TO APARTMENT BUILDINGS.

You never RECOMMEND an investment to a client. If the client is a novice, educate them about the Pros and Cons of each investment. Let them choose the property that fits their risk/reward comfort level.
