In addition to the points already given...here are a few more: 1. Bigger house can be a serious drag on your financial future. 2. With a smaller (more modest) home, you may become the richest person on the block instead of maxing out your mortgage and have sleepless nights due to financial stress. ...

Okay, I'm gonna have to straighten some things out here. I'd be more inclined to take this post seriously if it came from someone who's actually bought a house before. I do agree that a homeowner would provide a better perspective. However, that doesn't negate my points either. These are only probl...

(everything is better than the bloated, pseudo-architectural clusterfrack civilian hummer of single family residence that is the McMansion). Why? I'm not saying you're wrong, but you seem to think that your opinion is pretty much the definitive statement on housing. Don't get me wrong, I'm not agai...

I'd be more inclined to take this post seriously if it came from someone who's actually bought a house before. 1) You can pay it off sooner and will have to pay a lot less. 2) There's less heating, cooling and energy costs 3) A much lower cost to maintain and fix the house These are only problems if...

You guys must be reading a different article than I am. I see nowhere that she has few friends or family. Nor do I see where she walked around in an old coat and clothes, didn't go anywhere or travel, etc. Many affluent people fly beneath the radar and still lead fulfilling lives. The woman obviousl...

Or does the rate of return still keeps going. Both. What you make or lose at the end of the year is going to be all you make or lo...

That's a 53 page PDF you provided-- I don't know when I'll find the time to tackle that and even if I did I'm not sure how much I'd understand. That's why I posted here, to get general advice in more laymen terms, looking for people to tell me what has worked for them so I could emulate it, etc, no...

Opened it with USAA because their customer service is great and ease of use of their services are great. Put the money in for 2015. What did you invest in? What are their expenses? If they cost more than, say, Vanguard, are those costs justified by their customer service and ease of use? When shoul...
