How to Marry A Billionaire

This month’s MONEY magazine has an article on How to Marry a Billionaire. The article understands that it isn’t neccesarily “politically correct to go hunting for a marital meal ticket (or for that matter, to write about it).” Yet, it fearlessly trudges ahead with a step by step process.


Lower your sites…Shoot for Millionaire.

Marry the child of a billionaire.

Get an M.B.A. (most billionaires meet their spouses at work)

Make Consumption Your Career (Sell that Billionaire a Boat)

Move Closer to Where the $$$ lives.

On that note, check out these active listings in the STL area.

This listing on Cleveland is less than 1/4 mile from this one on Longfellow in the prestigious Compton Heights.

This listing on Waterman at just 129K is less than a 1/4 mile from this listing on Washington Terrace with a suggested listing value of 1.9 million.

At 1.2 million this mansion on the Mississippi is surrounded by many affordable properties. Check out this one on Wicklow for 119K.

In Kirkwood (though I had to extend to tradius search from 1/4 to 1/2 mile) I did find this very affordable home on Essex for 205K not far from this new construction shaker style home on Edwin, a bargain at 1.3 million.

According to the article, no matter what your budget you can move within 16 blocks of big $$$ and possibly run into that billionaire at the local coffee shop. So, if that’s your style, I hope this will be helpful.
