Nov 28, 2019 79 Comments

just hit my goal of reaching a million dollars in total networth (stocks, cash, crypto. excluding house and 401)

I own a house thats fully paid off. My parents passed it down to me. they now live in Nevada

thinking I should retire and spend time with my family. maybe start a blog or youtube channel. lol

Age: 29
Married: Yes
Kids: 1
TC: 280k
networth: 1.4m

Edit: my wife will still work to provide the family with health insurance. so maybe jot retire full time but be a stay hhome day

    1.4M doesn’t go very far especially with 1 kid.

    • If you keep it invested, why would you worry about inflation? The real inflation-adjusted IRR of the market is strictly positive, and if you compare it against the CPI index you can see how stocks are a very good inflation hedge, which is obvious since they are an equity investment.

      The 4% safe withdrawal rate, which is where the 240k/yr mentioned up thread comes from, accounts for inflation.

      Very lucky. My parents bought the house in south San Francisco in 1982 for 89k!

      The four of you above who took it seriously, it's a joke about the tech lead. He is a YouTube wannabe software guru

    I got 4m net worth with about 1.6m in mortgage loans as I own multiple real estate investments. My liquid assets are around 1.2m. 2 kids and I realized I got some freedom to choose what I want to do, but can't stop working yet. Gymnastics is a good 3k a year + travel, soccer is 2.5k, swimming team 2k, ski team 2.5k + season passes for the whole family, coding lessons for 8 year old 2k a year, forget instrument, travel summer camp or vacation... Overall we got about 170k in expenses with pretty much home cooking and one vacation a year, usually using miles and points.

      This was really useful. Thanks for sharing! My kids are super young and I've always wondered how much activities realistically end up costing when they're older.

    I plan to retire once I hit 2 mil. That's a safe $60k annual withdrawal rate

      I also believe 2 mil is a good target. But, what about health care insurance?

      Yeah, honestly healthcare is the major dark horse in the equation.

      I think I'm probably underestimating the total cost in my projected budget a bit, but I'm also hopeful that as the remnants of the boomers get flushed from positions of power that we'll see the situation improve somewhat in the next couple of decades.

      Honestly if I were looking to retire within the next couple of years I'd make sure I up'ed my "number" by at least 20% due to the massive bull market we're currently atop of and uncertainties around Healthcare policy, but since I won't be retiring for 10+ years I can't pretend to predict what things will be like then.

    Not a millionaire but say I own a $1M house with no other assets. In CA that’s a $10k annual property tax expense. (We haven’t even discussed food or other mandatory expenses). You need more cash flow to pay your property taxes. So you need to work or have investments to draw from. For many, $1m isn’t enough to stop working.

    1.4m is nothing . 50k * 70 = 3.5 m (plan for 100 years).

      Are you assuming the money doesn’t get invested at all? Your math is incredibly flaw. 3.5M would historically allow you to withdraw 120k/y inflation adjusted.

      And 120k is a reasonable amount for retirement not 50k. So wait till 3.5 m
