"You get to deduct the expenses arising from your rental activity. There is one big difference however: You must divide certain expenses between the part of the property you rent out and the part you live in, just as though you actually had two separate pieces of property. This includes your p...

Like you said I'd probably have to rent it out.

This is a bad position to be in. If you can't afford it without renting, don't do it. Also realize you will have to pay taxes on the rent so it will be closer to $600 a month you'll net.

No one will ever care as much about your money as you will. Do as BF says, educate yourself, don't go to a CFP, and avoid fees like the plague that they are. Until you know enough to make an educated decision on your own keep your money in low risk places like cash in amutual fund or short term bond...

I think a lot of this varies by college to be honest. Some colleges offer aid ONLY based on financial need (mine did), but others do a mix of financial need and "merit." Merit aid is based on grades and test scores and so on. That's distinct from financial need. Usually, "need" ...

Colleges in about 34 states hold an even called "College Goal Sunday" where you can talk to people who know the right answers to these questions. I suggest you visit http://www.collegegoalsundayusa.org/ and find an even near you. The rules are basically the same everywhere so you can also ...

Is that what you call it? Character? Ok, I guess he's a character.

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...

Paying off the car loan a year early saves you only about $350 in interest. I think I'd put the money toward investing and pay off the loan as agreed.

Exactly. Though if I were to make a political statement I'd lament that we are not picking a great choice for the first woman president. There are lots of women who are better qualified to lead in both parties but don't have the political base to be elected, yet.

Surprised I've barely heard any chatter about the historical event of the first woman frontrunner/ president. Either the 3 stooges of the republican party 3 ring circus sopped up all of the media's attention, or America no longer thinks of Hilary Clinton as a woman. Or no one thinks it is noteworth...

Let's not restrict ourselves to modern times. Some of the first private bonds and stocks were issued to build canals in England many centuries ago. Evidence suggests that the return spreads of equities over bonds were very similar back then.

So I finally decided to just call Aon Hewitt and ask them if I should be seeing any dividends or interest credited to my account, and they said no. I'm really really confused on how investing in 401k does anything to build wealth. If there aren't any dividends to be reinvested in my account, my acc...

The criteria here is "don't sell". However under a Roth IRA I can own a family of funds where I can manipulate my percentages and adjust risk without having to occur taxes as long as none of the funds exits the Roth IRA umbrella. Therefore I can rebalance among various offerings within th...

LM was just trying to help. Mathematically it is always best to pay off the highest rate debt first and even increase a lowest rate debt to pay off the highest.

But when someone reports what you have we get concerned. No one can give good advise without full information.
