Walter Hickey of Business Insider has observed the investment decisions of this Wisconsin Congressman and has jotted down few facts which have made him a millionaire. Let’s have a glimpse.
1. A Brief Stint as A Landlord Made Ryan Some Early Cash
In Feb. 1998, Ryan bought 3 rental properties in Janesville, Wisc., for which he paid $100,000 - $250,000. It was hard to finance them do he took a mortgage from Anchorbank SSB.
He earned $15,000 - $50,000 per year as a rent from his tenants. With this profit earned, he bought fourth rental property in the year 2000. Till then, the value of his properties ranged from $250,000 and $500,000. Then he started his real estate business in 2011.

In 2001, the stake in Red River Pine LLC was worth only $ 15,000 to $ 50,000. Now, it could be worth up to $ 100,000, according to his filing done on 2011.

As the market was crashing in 2001, Ryan and his wife made an investment in the Fidelity Contrafund of worth $ 15,000. This company tries to identify the underperforming blue – chips and other stocks. This investment was a really good decision for the couple.
