Just curious about what everyone aspires to actually acheive through property (or other) investment. A lot of people allude to this idea of 'wealth', how do you define that for yourself? And how do you know whether you are there or not? For me, I kind of get the feeling that I may be a bit unusal here. I am not chasing 'wealth' or aspiring to be rich. Property investment is about maintaining a lifestyle that I enjoy, both now and into the future. I would like to be able to retire when all the kids leave home and still be able to maintain this lifestyle.
