Lol, too often, the mansion is the reason why they aren't millionaires.  :)
Even amongst the non mansions, because of the RE balloon, there are many on-paper milionairs...

Many ppl in Lakewood got into homes at ~400k + own one as an investment, and they have now appreciated so much that they are worth way more than 1MM (Net)

1. Million dollar home does not necessarily mean a million dollars net worth.
2. There are probably more than 10,000 families in Lakewood so 20% of that would be at least 2k millionaires. Which is far higher than your estimates.
Just FTR there are probably closer to 20K families in Lakewood.

Ok, even if I trim my number to a more realistic 10%, it is still way higher than the rest of the country bh

You think Lakewood has more millionaire households per capita than all other frum communities?

Dunno.
It's definitely one of the most entrepreneurial of the frum communities... similar to Willi and bk.

Very different than the OT communities where ppl are happy with a nice proffesionl salary

That's certainly true.  I think a of communities have shifted to less 9-5 positions and more entrepreneurial pursuits though.  Especially the most recent generation.

Very true.
Lakewood has a lower cost of living than most communities and less professionals/college graduates than (most?) other frum communities. All that adds up to higher rates of self-employment/entrepreneurship.
Live forever or die trying.

And the successful entrepreneurs are millionaires

They're bipolar, one day the whole Lakewood is on food stamps the next day we're all billionaires!
Starting to think that the app wrote this article cuz they new this fbi raid was coming and needed to write a positive article before the storm, this way avoiding all the people that say they only say bad stuff...

Wyvr, AK really has to stop touting stuff THIS as the success of BMG.

It is so distasteful and wrong.

How do you explain the 6+ Duplexes for rent available in cedarwood hills?

Is this investors who cannot sell, or buyers who cannot afford the mortgage?

Either way the bubble is confirmed imho.

Did you notice that none of them are available yet? The owner hasn't even closed on it.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
