Good analogy Edwin... Even with reasonable returns of 5%, it is hard to justify selling a solid earning site. The site itself is an incredible investment that keeps doubling your money each year with no principle (for some sites this is the case).
My "problem" is I quit my day job years ago, so I'm semi-retired to the point where I simply maintain my site(s) and don't have a real job, so I burn through most of my site's earnings to cover living expenses for my family. This makes it a higher risk investment to me since I have more to lose if things go south. But if I had a day job, it would simply be money in the bank each year, doubling and tripling.
Hmmm.. Kind of makes me want to go out and get a day job again! NOT! ;-)
