When you buy rental property all you've really bought is a full time job.Who wants to work when they are a multi-millionaire?Not this dude,thats for sure.

Gotta agree with you there Cletu$2.......stay away from any issues,drama,liability and headaches other than my money working for me and that dividend check showing up in the account each month

Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

      I Agree! But you can always hire management staff. Wink  In my case, management staff can be the younger generation if they want any part of inheriting.

         That's the point. I need my own property management company to fund my movie pitching business. (pitching itself doesn't cost that much. You need a writer and illustrators.)

          R.E.I.T.S can still be good, if you pick the right ones,

          and they will improve w/ the R/E market, its cyclical.

              Hire management staff ???  more headaches, more lawyers, more agreements to sign then what I want,...what if that staff does a poor job or  goes out of business, then you have to hire a new one.......neeeeehhhh.....requires too many people and more expenses for my tastes..wanna keep it simple, atty for legal advice, financial advisor for investments and a CPA for taxes.....but for those that want the real estate life style ?? Go get em kids.....

                    My brother-in-law is a vice president at a national property development company and studying landlord business. Maybe he and I can work together, since we are very close friends.

                        Realistically all you really need to win is $3 million to $10 million free and clear to retire and live a pretty great life. You can have a very nice home, cars, boat and other stuff and have enough money left over to live off the interest. I really never wanted to win these gigantic jackpots, my gut feeling is that they probably create a lot more problems than if you won something smaller. 

                        And for the person that wanted to buy hundreds of rental houses, don't do it. I have owned rental properties and it is just a headache. I can only imagine 800 people trying to figure out a way to sue you and get at your money. If you win, buy a boat and live off your interest, hell live off your cash, you don't need the stress.

                          travel to every state,  since I don't drink or smoke or do drugs, I would work on hobbies,try new activities, visit family and friends,workout a couple of hrs each day....do some volunteer work at a VET or seniors center, go to concerts,.....You need no organized plan to enjoy life...you can choose whatever,whenever...after all, whatever the winner does, isn't up to anyone's scrutiny except themselves.....The winner is financially free already...

                            It might ruin your life,but not mine.

                            i'm sure you won't have to worry about it happening. but it would if you did. you don't have a clue about what you would do when beseiged by throngs of people trying to get it away from you. and whoever wants to buy rental property. for what possible reason would you want to make more money off rental property. more than likely no one would pay the rent when they found out you owned it so you would be spending your time in court trying to evict them all. whoever wants to give to charities would be spending their entire life fending off the millions of charities that would be requesting help. and where do you cut off the relatives seeking the gravy. they would never stop coming at you for more and more. point is that it's just too much for 1 winner to handle. yes, it would ruin your life forever.

                              I worked hard for 40 years and now I'm retired and don't like the idea of working anymore.I'll buy a Powerhouse Motor Coach and travel around America.I don't have any desire to travel the world,though,because people talk funny in most of the countrys of the world.I speak American english and thats good enough for me.The British and the Aussies speak the Queens English and I can't understand a thing they say.I don't smoke,drink or do drugs,so I won't be pissing money away for that kind of nonsense.I do have one vice,though.I love custom cars.I can see myself buying a few of them.A nice 49 Merc would be my first choice.A 34 Ford sedan would be my second choice.I wouldn't give a nickle for any Chevy or Chrysler product,though.They build ugly cars,always have.And japenese junk is out of the question,even those cars that are built here in America because the profit still ends up in Japan.I wouldn't have a Rolls or a Bently if you paid me to take it.U-G-L-Y!I hate newer cars because somewhere along the line somebody in Detroit decided that everyone loves the euro design and now 95% of the cars that they build look just like the next one.I call them cookie cutter cars.if you want a car with only 2 doors you have to settle for a sub compact or a used Monte Carlo.Some college educated idiot decided that Americans all want 4 doors on their cars.I know millions of street rodders that would disagree with him.But I digress.I would travel the roads & scenic byways of America peaking into every nook & cranny of the greatest country on earth.I'd take my time and not get into hurry.Thats what I'd do if I win this huge jackpot.Your mileage may vary.
