Real Estate Warriors, You're Surrounded by Them!

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

Sometimes they are not easily recognized but our Real Estate Warriors are all around us.  They aren't as prevalent as in the past but you know who they are.  Many other industries have surpassed the measly incomes and profits which Real Estate provided to so many families in the past century.  The adage that they are not making any more of it has not swayed many to forego the opportunity which land ownership, especially in this country, can provide.  Chosen wisely, even small parcels in the right places prove this to be true.  Do you remember or maybe you still think of "Millionaires" as being an unreachable goal.  In 2010 that thought has been converted to "Billionaires" which is nearly inconceivable for many.

A Band of American Indians on Horseback

Since 2006 the Forbes 400 list has had only billionaires in it's ranks.  Thirty of these claim Real Estate as the avenue which created or now captures most of their wealth.  The "Trumpster", while still formidable just by the sake of appearing on this list is down to #153.  With the three youngest Players of the RE game in their 50's it seems people just don't have the patience to wait out the real life Monopoly game here.  In all, four of the top 400 are 20 somethings.  The youngest, Mark Zuckerberg, I'm sure most of you know.  Two more got here c/o Facebook, can you name them?  David Rockefeller is the elder at 95 and there probably has been a Rockefeller on the list even before there was one.  John D. did alright for himself and the family!  How he accomplished this feat is subject to one's own acceptance and moral beliefs.  Ruthless, he was that!  We always talk about location, location, location and always will.  If your goal is to rub elbows with as many of these personalities as possible in the hopes that their mystical powers will permeate you then start in good old New York, NY.  Fifty six of them hail from there or at least call it their primary residence.  Texas is big and has three of the top locales to be seen out and about.  Pick Dallas, Ft. Worth or Houston and you'll be in good company.  LA and San Francisco are good bets if California is to your liking.  Relatively sleepy compared to others here, Greenwich, CT has probably the highest density of grennbacks.  The Wild West still thrives with Players in LV, NV the mindset there is uniquely their own willing to take on the masses with an all in attitude.  Do you have what it takes to be on this list?

Kevin,

Love this post and you commentary, and best of all your last line, "Isn't it Grand to be an American?  Like no other place on Earth! "  We feel that way.  R & A

Hey Kevin, Real estate ownership... it's there for the taking. So, many opportunities today to grab a piece of the action. If you're not snatching up real estate, I'm afraid you may well be missing the boat.

R & A, you both feel and "live" it from what I see.  You're fabulous!

Sandy, sometimes, if you have enough Real Estate you can get the boat for free!  Now couldn't be better.

Kevin, Agreed, gotta love your way of thinking.  And, sometimes timing is everything, isn't it?

Very interesting insight.  Do I have what it takes?  Probably not at the moment.  I guess I could if I wanted to and that was my main goal in life.  I always settle for contentment which doesn't have much to do with $$

You forgot the Oracle from Omaha (my hometown).  Is he still on the list?  He actually lives a semi-normal life and if I could live like he does and get there I could keep contentment ;)

Renee, at least you're in a favorable location when you make the turn.  WB is still rockin & rollin at #2.  He's of the same mindset as you without too much concern about $$$$ nowadays.  I believe the both of you are quite content for the moment.  Mr. Gates, at the numero uno spot, like the Facebook boys don't involve themselves too much with Real Estate.
