I replaced my roof myself on my first house. 4 years later a hail storm forced me to replace it again, and since insurance was footing the bill this time I decided to hire it out. It took less than a day and they did a good job, but then I got a bill for more than the insurance quote. I pointed out ...

My buyer lost her cosigner and had to back out of the contract. The cosigner used the loan objection to get the earnest money back but their agent let it slip that there's actually quite a bit of family drama going on. So I went back on the market and had one day of showings. Have I mentioned that t...

I've been a busy, busy little bee. First of all, I finally "finished" my house and am under contract to sell! Once I had the contract I started house hunting and am under contract to buy as well! I'm selling in a seller's market and buying in a buyer's market which is really helping out, i...

What exactly do you think is a scam? I'm about to sell my 40 year old 1,039sq ft house for $168,000 so to me that's an excellent sales price. Texas property taxes, however, are extremely high compared to my area. I pay less than $600/year but I've heard of people paying $1,000/month in other states....

I stopped listening to DR for two reasons - the amount of self promotion and his intolerance for anyone who doesn't do it "his way". Yes, I know you have this great product called FPU, and your daughter has a book or program or whatever, but do you really have to reference it every five mi...

I was 30 when I started my career in web development so I'd have to say nope, not too late at all. If you have any sort of work that you did and is visible online, whether you got paid or not, you can start looking for a new job now, especially if you've done server side work, know any javascript fr...

Zillow also has a mortgage marketplace similar to Lendingtree, except where Lendingtree sells your info to anyone who wants it Zillow only sells it to the brokers/lenders you approve. Or so it says on their website. Supposedly it cuts down on spam and phone calls from lenders months after you close....

This may be a stupid question, but how do you shop for a mortgage? And when do you do it, when you first start looking at houses or when you're ready to get the mortgage? Is it worth going to sites like Zillow or Lendingtree? There are hundreds if not thousands of lenders in my area so the idea of s...

It's starting to look like I will be selling and buying a house this summer. I haven't decided for certain, I'm going to look at some houses this weekend to make sure they aren't priced in my range because they have crumbling foundations or mold infestations (look, I'm a poet!) and then I'll make th...

So pre-tax contributions don't have Social Security or Medicare withheld, but post-tax do and you don't get it back when you file? If that's case I'll keep bugging the HR person until she responds so I can increase my contributions through payroll, pay the bills out of savings then reimburse myself ...

I have a brand new HSA and so far one paycheck's contributions have been made. However, I recently had a minor medical emergency and expect the bills to be at least $700. I set up my contributions to total only $500 for the year and I should get another $400 from my employer, so it will take several...

Had a big week this week. 1) My tax refund came in. Which allowed me to 2) finish funding my 2013 Roth early! 3) I'm now a real person at work! No more time cards, I get some benefits tomorrow and the rest kick in during the next few weeks, there's a matching 401k with what appears to be a decent se...
