Jason Hartman talks with author Todd Babbitt about his rise to wealth through real estate investing while still in his 20s. What would you do with a million dollars? For the majority of Americans, the answer to this question will remain only a dream. But not to Todd Babbitt, who reached his goal of being a millionaire by the age of 28. Todd’s book, Millionaire by 28: Real Estate Investing for the Young and Ambitious, recounts Todd’s rise from middle-class dreamer to multimillionaire without having extraordinary talents, privileged family members, or connections. He used only the resources he had: common sense, persistence, and a burning desire to make money.
Todd Babbitt grew up in the Washington, D.C. area, in an average middle-class family. He attained the majority of his wealth through real estate, and a smaller portion from the stock market. Nothing he did was complicated or beyond the understanding of an average person. Today, Todd lives the good life in Naples, Florida, with his wife and daughter. He continues to build his net worth through various investments.
