Gee, didn't we already say this 4 years ago in a thread dedicated to tips on saving money? Yes but shaving has changed SO much in that time. Wasn't the straight razor still the only option then? And of course long beards with full sideburns were the fashion along with handlebar mustaches so the amo...

I am looking at two scenarios where I have $300k savings and $2,115 per month to use for real estate and investment in a target fund. I'm not sure if my logic is correct below but I see more net profit by putting 20% down and investing the remainder of the $2,115/mo (after mortgage payment) in a ta...

I have $350,000 right now and I was looking to do something with it. I don't feel comfortable doing anything riskier than say a Target Fund. Any target fund with a target date beyond about 10 years from now will be nearly 100% in the stock market. I see nothing wrong with that. But your statement i...

I think you need to be much more clear on your definitions. What do you mean by "more powerful?" As BF said, you can do the math on different scenarios but there will always be intangibles that are hard to factor in. Focusing on how much interest you pay is, well, completely wrong. You sho...

If you have to ask then you should stick with large publicly traded REITs. Never buy individual properties.

Hey As you have mentioned in your post that we need to familiar with rental laws. so I want to ask you something related to this. Actually My relatives rented a apartment few months back and at the time of making final deal with the owner, he promised to give all facilities. But now my relatives ar...

It does not sound like there is a lot more you can do but there may be some things if you are willing to get complicated. For example, whole life insurance MAY be a way for you to reduce taxes and be able to borrow. You MAY be able to pay your mother pretax if she sets up a legitimate business and s...

In some states it is NOT legal. And employees must be paid before any other creditors no matter what. The only exception is taxes. In other states however, what they are doing is perfectly legal. Airlines are regulated at the Federal level, (assuming they fly interstate) and airline employees may no...

I have an "idea" of his expenses, but I don't know the exact amount. I know the amount of his car insurance payment, phone payment, rent and utilities payment; I just don't know the amount he has saved or the amount he spends on general expenses (gas, groceries, miscellaneous items). I've...

I would open up an account at one of the large brokerages (Vangard, Fidelity, TRP, etc) and put the money in index funds. Not just a large brokerage firm. A brokerage firm the has low fees. I'm sure that's what TW meant to say, just clarifying. Regarding my own suggestion, how much of your net wort...

I agree with Ranger. LTD is something you are far more likely to need than you might expect. I would aim to replace up to your full income if they will let you. Generally they will only let you replace about 2/3 so that would be fine.

Your credit report is a record of what happened. You've now paid the bill, but that doesn't change the fact that you were months late. Removing that note from your record would make the report inaccurate, as it would suggest you've never been late paying a bill, when in fact you were. It sucks, but...
