Hi, I'' m Grant Sabatier, the maker of
All right, allow'' s do it. I'' m Dianne as well as I ' m Guillermo. Portugal'' s like disloyalty when it comes.
to FIRE since I believe the cost of living is probably like 25% to 30% what.
it is in the united state. So if they'' ve saved$ 2.2 million, that. properly means they have $6 million or $7 million in U.S.Dollars. Dianne
as well as Guillermo have a. great deal of cash saved up for for their trip. I was a property agent and also I had. created a little real estate
team in the USA, Northern Virginia,. D.C. city location.
I remained in the telecommunications sector for over. 20 years Did 4 years in the armed forces in the.
It'' s one of the fastest expanding real. I'' m presuming that in enhancement to obtaining.
good large payments on her sales, she likewise spent in a pair investment.
residential properties. I'' m thrilled to see if that'' s the situation. In 2018, our total assets was$ 2.2 million.
USD and currently today in 2022, our internet well worth is $2.6 million.
USD. There you go. That'' s a crucial point. They retired in 2018 and also they'' ve been. able to get involved in completion of what was actually among the very best.
advancing market in history.And I began
investing in 2010 as well as just.
the development of my financial investments from 2018 to 2022 has in fact outmatched theirs. However they'' ve had the ability to take advantage.
of that uncommon possibility. Whereas if you retire at the correct time.
and also after that your portfolio grows at 20% or 30% right after you retire, you have a.
lot more alternatives. My stepmother really was diagnosed.
with cancer and also my mother ended up having to care for.
them along with myself.And the week
that he passed away, my.
mom was identified with cancer. I invested even more than a year taking treatment of.
As well as I recognized even though I'' d constantly. I began truly taking a look at our.
numbers. I began talking with a financial.
expert. I located the FIRE area and I came up.
with a plan and presented it to Guillermo. So it appears like Dianne'' s truly. leading the fee here, and it'' s usually mosting likely to be one individual in a.
pair that takes the lead.And actually, my
wife could care much less. concerning money or FIRE or economic independence, but she was delighted around. the chance to have more liberty. It ' s vital to keep in mind that it ' s a great deal. less complicated to get to'monetary freedom if you have your partner on board. Our plan was to remain two years in each. country to discover as well as see if we can find our for life home in each nation. We did 3 years in Mexico because of. the pandemic. There was one additional year that would certainly. stay.After that, we wanted to check out more of.
have our money mainly in an actual.
We wear ' t actually have an economic.
I hope they get involved in their specifics of. their actual estate investments.
That ' s the first thing that they'provided. And after that the second was Roth IRAs, and also. after that the last was broker agent.
In addition to the cash that we saved. We in fact sold a residential or commercial property in. Alexandria, Virginia, that we were living in.
I made over$ 120,000 on that. We got one in Gainesville that
of the 3 leasings. Below'' s one of the mistakes they made. If any type of blunder, it'' s selling that. residential or commercial property in Alexandria, Virginia, for only $100,000 to $150,000 profit. It'' s one of the fastest valuing.
markets in the country, extremely near National Flight terminal in DC, ideal throughout.
the Potomac River from D.C. As well as Alexandria home is something, at.
least in their situation, I'' d recommend they hold on to as a leasing for as lengthy as.
feasible. It'' s so much better hanging on.
it as a service for the following 20, three decades than it was costing $100,000 to.
$ 150,000 in profit. So our normal expenses in the United States before.
we retired had to do with $7,000 USD a month. And also in Mexico our costs had to do with.
$ 2,700 a month. We have actually only been in Portugal concerning 6.
months currently. They'' re still living in a high,.
expensive location for much less than $100,000 a year, yet absolutely reducing their.
expenditures considerably.My assumption is they might have FIRE ' d perhaps. 3, 4 or 5 years earlier. As well as I ask yourself why they really made a decision.
to be extra conservative. I spent a long time in Lisbon myself, as well as.
it was difficult to spend money there. Specifically when you can eat those fresh.
sardines for like EUR1 per bushel and also get a bottle of a glass of wine for EUR2 or less. I'' m in fact curious just how they'' re. investing a lot money unless they have an actually baller home, which it doesn'' t. appearance like from this video clip they have. Who recognizes, maybe they'' ve got some.
secret splurges and they'' re really right into diving or something. I'' ve been getting into crypto, so I may.
be learning more about that even more or heading out and taking different lessons.
whether it'' s languages or diving or yoga. Oh, look at that. Diving. He called it. Something that'' s going on that we function.
into our daily routines. Now, we'' re not taking into consideration relocating.
back to the US.But one point we'' ve found out in life is.
We'' re really looking much more at Eastern. As well as we'' ll proceed our.
trips until we discover our little item of paradise. Yeah, they'' re sensation actually
favorable. Currently due to the fact that their investment portfolio has actually grown over $400,000 given that.
they reached FIRE and retired early in 2018. They have a YouTube network that'' s. most likely making some money. As well as so they'' re revealing this exceptionally.
bullish response. After having that growth, their.
profiles probably went down concerning 20% this year, which is much more than.
would have appreciated.So I ' d wonder to see if they ' re. still ultimately feeling this means, but in general, they ' re in a really wonderful. position.
The greatest point is keep exploring,.
maintain an open mind. You don'' t have to pick your permanently.
residence. As well as as a matter of fact, perhaps you need to toss that.
concept out the home window. They have tremendous flexibility and.
flexibility. They invest their time doing things.
that they love. They like learning brand-new things. You can really do that anywhere in the.
world. With 1 being horrible, 10 being amazing. I'' m mosting likely to clock Dianne as well as Guillermo.
at a strong 8.75. I assume they'' ve done pretty a lot.
every little thing right. As well as as a matter of fact, maybe excessive right. And also I would urge them not to be also.
beholden to their spreadsheets and also possibly take a little much more threats in their.
life. Possibly spend a bit even more cash, if.
they can, to see how it makes them feel. All right. Well, that'' s concerning it. Thanks for enjoying this reaction video clip. For more excellent video clips, see to it you.

I'' m Dianne as well as I ' m Guillermo. It'' s one of the fastest expanding actual. It ' s essential to note that it ' s a great deal. We wear ' t in fact have an economic. Here'' s one of the errors they made.
