Why do you ask? Total assets in isolation is a "How big is yours" question.

OP, at 5 mil I think you are good to go. Don't think I am going out on a limb there.

Secondly, I don't mind sharing that we should be right at 3 mil when we pull the trigger, hopefully in 2017. Don't care if folks know that number or if they can figure out who I am.

YMMV.

As others have said, you probably won't get many exact numbers from folks here, or any other board for that matter. As pointed out, some of the polls that have been taken around here should give you a good idea.

IMO, while it's interesting to know about your peers, I think what really matters is how much do you need (or want) or maybe it's better to say, what lifestyle are your looking for. Many seem to get by (happily) on a million or far less, others don't seem to be happy with 5 million or more.
