Re: Why Did I Buy That Dry Bubble Gum?

I really thought his discussion on how much harder it is to grow billions of $ vs. a million $ is. I look back on my real estate portfolio and find it hard to believe that I will get the same growth rate as I have in the past. I would have to go past my 50 unit goal and I'm not willing to do at this moment. So I will most likely settle for returns more in line with the stock market. To put it in perspective our networth has increased 70% in some years and over 400% in 3 years. BTW- those growth rates were achieved by buying those 75 cent dollars not by CA type appreciation. I can't imagine duplicating those returns without buying 100s of units. Unfortunately or hopefully I will have the same problem as WB

I just want to know where he looks for those "off the beaten path" stocks. He didn't get all those deals out of his Moody's.

I disagree. It's easy to say the money will follow when you lost count of the number of zeroes long ago.

Well, I'm not buying that line either. Doing the job you love is nice, but
expecting the money to follow is a bit naive.

Ouch! Surely I had one or two wise ones. Anyway, all of those 5800 posts were entertaining (to me).
