i can buy the 2 bed unit im living in for $240,000 ish & put away say 1/2 which is
$400,000 & spend $200,000...i will give the pillypines a miss maybe for a hols?.
$850,000 is alot but its only $42,000 a year which is about 25% less than what
i was earning, so essentially i get 80% of my average wage for the next 20 years
so i have to invest it smart.
i think bricks & mortar is a solid investment.tb
