How Much Money You Need To Be Wealthy


#1

I see greed and envy is running rampant on the forum lately, with people obsessing how much the other folks have… :smile:

Here’s a study right up your alley folks. Bottom of the list, you only need 1.8M to be wealthy in Charlotte NC. What city is on top? Guess? Anyone?

No.3:

Washington, D.C.

To be financially comfortable, you need a net worth of $780,000

To be wealthy, you need a net worth of $3 million

No. 2:

New York, New York

To be financially comfortable, you need a net worth of $1.1 million

To be wealthy, you need a net worth of $3.2 million

No. 1 … DRUM ROLL…

San Francisco, California

To be financially comfortable, you need a net worth of $1.1 million

To be wealthy, you need a net worth of $4.2 million

You’re very obsessed how much is needed to be FIRE and be wealthy.
Look like your $5 mil per person (or is it adult) to be FIRE is in fact being wealthy :grinning:

I like to set goals for myself. For FIRE you just need to calculate how much income you need and work backward. I think for a family of 4 in prime Bay Area 200K should be comfortable. How much capital you need depends on your investment returns.

“Wealthy” is more subjective. My 5M per head, kid or adult, is just some random number I pulled out from the sky.

Don’t me wrong, I like green as much as anyone else, but it is def not a main focus. I still say I find it real ironic that when you were younger you fantasized about the cars and goodies but then later when you actually have some dough in your pockets you could care less about the cars and goodies…


#6

Absolutely, of you had to choose between your wifey and your 6 doors, you’d choose wifey in a heartbeat :wink:


#7

Shockingly only one of the 3 piglets on the list. :smile:


#8

Us piglets are nothing compared to the Papa Pig :pig:

:rofl:


#9

Count yourself lucky.
I am waiting for the tiger.

#10

Greed is Good… Gordon Gecko


#11

You have just displaced @hanera for the #2 spot… :rofl:

@ptiemann and @Elt1 are rolling on the floor laughing at such ridiculously low bar… come on San Franciscans, you can do much better than that!!! :rofl:


#12

Well that’s how the story goes, only one pig triumphs. The rest become pork chop dinner because you can only go so far with houses built in straw and sticks.


#13

Well, only the mama pig and papa pig will get slaughtered and eaten by the wolf here.
