I kinda agree with you... but I have worked for 100 million dollar clients with their vacation residence in France. If you get enough money... it really doesn't matter... I am not there yet but I know it is possible. BTW, look up resale value on a land cruiser/lexus lx570. It will get my money back more than any smuck buying a Tahoe, etc. The funniest thing I have ever encountered is I met a 50 million dollar net worth client on a commercial property he was renovating.... and he was wearing $25 used Goodwill loafers.... but then again he had his own private jet.
