I'm curious if anyone has ever done this and if it worked out or not. I have a mortgage on my house, and I plan to keep paying the mortgage and taxes, having the buyer pay me, and putting in a balloon payment in five years. He'd name me as an additional insured on his homeowner's policy. In the inte...

My DH may become an independent contractor once he leaves his corporate job. So he'll be getting 1099s from various companies if he decides to go this way. I'm curious what kind of retirement plan is available for people who are independent contractors. Is that considered self-employment even though...

Thanks for the suggestions! Our credit scores are in the 800s, and mortgage debt is all we have on a six figure income so it's definitely the low loan amount. I always forget the credit union, even though we've been a member for years.

I was hoping to lower the interest rates on my two home loans (rental and primary). The rental balance is so low that BofA (bought the original loan) will charge a 2% fee. The mortgage guy said there hasn't been a secondary market for small loans for the last 18 months. I checked out the zillow.com ...

My software developer husband is considering taking an early retirement package that puts 14 months of his base pay into his pension and allows medical coverage at active employee rate for 2 years and retiree rate thereafter. We can live for at least a year, possibly more off savings. We could also ...

My DH is facing taking early retirement aka a layoff, although we won't know for sure for a while, and he's managed to dodge several in the past 23 years with the same company. He's 61 and although articles we've read said companies are looking for software engineers, I'm betting they're not looking...

We met with our credit union financial planner today, and he suggested an in-service rollover of my husband's 401(k) because the company has reduced the number of options in the plan to growth funds. I didn't realize you could take your 401(k) money out when you are 59.5 and roll it into an IRA whil...

I heard a financial person say that you should only contribute up to the match (Roth and traditional 401k) and then put any extra money into an emergency fund, fund a Roth IRA pay off debt, etc. If you have no debt other than mortgage debt and already fund a Roth to the max, should you still only co...

My friend is thinking about buying silver as an investment. She said she talked to her broker who thinks that silver is going to go up in the next two years. I'm just curious what people think about silver being a good investment in general and a good investment for this particular person. Just a fe...

One other thing you might think about is the possibility of tenants wrecking your house. Tenants sometimes do not treat a rental house the same as they would their own house. I rented my house in another state (using a property management company--I never considered being a landlord from afar), and,...

I'd like to be debt free by the time we retire in 8 years. The only debt we have is our mortgage. We've been maxing out a 401(k) and two Roth IRAs (including catch-up contributions). I wonder if I should quit contributing to one of the Roths and put that toward the mortgage.

Thank you.

We bought a house last September in the town where my husband works, turning the house we were living in into a rental. We plan on moving back to the rental in 8 years when my husband retires at 66. The house we're living in has a kitchen that I'm not thrilled with--the stove should be where the ref...
