Millionaire to Millennials: Buy a Home!!


Last week, CNBC ran an article quoting self-made millionaire David Bach explaining that not purchasing a home is “the single biggest mistake millennials are making” because buying real estate is“an escalator to wealth.”

上週CNBC報導了一篇關於百萬富翁David Bach的文章,文中他說,不買房子是“千禧世代年輕人最大的錯誤”,因為購買房地產是“擁有財富的自動手扶梯”。

Bach went on to explain:


“If millennials don’t buy a home, their chances of actually having any wealth in this country are little to none. The average homeowner to this day is 38 times wealthier than a renter.”


In his bestselling book, “The Automatic Millionaire,” Bach does the math:


“As a renter, you can easily spend half a million dollars or more on rent over the years ($1,500 a month for 30 years comes to $540,000), and in the end wind up just where you started — owning nothing. Or you can buy a house and spend the same amount paying down a mortgage, and in the end wind up owning your own home free and clear!”

“作為承租人,多年累積下來,你可能需要花費$50萬美元以上的租金(每月$1,500美元,30年來達到$54萬美元),最後的結果也就是你開始的地方 – 什麼都沒有。但如果你可以買一棟房屋,並花了相同的金額支付房屋貸款,最後的結果是付清房貸完全無債務的擁有你自己的房屋!”
