Welcome! it seem like you're right on track, the only thing I see is if I was in your shoe, I would use that $1,000 a month you're saving for the house and pay off that student loan. The 6.5% interest is too high for my liking I would definitely aggressively pay that off. Hope you will learn a lot f...

Sounded like you had a good time in Africa, I know what you mean feeling queasy paying those expense. I quit my oversea job recently over in Afghanistan in October and been at home unemployed for almost 3 month. My expense is stacking up, I took an offer for new job with a different company so that'...

Just wondering if everyone has their 2015 goals yet? I have a couple of goals I want to accomplish next year. 401k - Will attempt to max this out, but since I started a new job my pay will be lower than before. For 2015 it is $18,000, I won't be able to contribute to my 401k until after 90 days of e...

Seem like you got a good head on your shoulder, hopefully your girlfriend pay you all the money she owe you. Also does any of your job offer a 401k? I would definitely knock out that CC debt first and after you finish you can start building your emergency fund. The rule of thumb is normally 3 - 6 mo...

Hello people didn't realize I haven't updated this thread for awhile. A lot have changed between my career & financial goals. I quit my job in October & went with a different company. Some of you may know I spent at least 3 years over in Afghanistan, and I think that is long enough for over ...

I would probably just stick it in a saving account or a CD. I would stay away from index fund and mutual since it can be volatile, so you don't want to lose any money when you're close to buying.

We have an offer to rent out our property but the prospective tenants have some questionable history. Low credit scores (low 500), unpaid medical bills, a few collection agency accounts, supposedly never late on rent. One of the tenants has a misdemeanor (Resisting Officer Without Violence (Resisti...

Yea, I currently have only 1 rental and 1 personal home that I bought for my mom & brother to stay in. I kind of regret buying the personal home since I didn’t want it, but it’s bit complicated on the personal side. I’m not making any money on the personal home, but I am trying to convince my mo...

I will have to agree with Vintek on tapping your 401k. It’s meant for your retirement so you shouldn’t be touching your 401k and let the magic of compounding work for you. Also it seem like you want to buy a house, normally the rule of thumb is: If you need the money less than 5 years you should jus...

Seem like the truck is giving you more problems than it’s worth. I say get rid of the truck and buy a used truck not a brand new one though. Just my two cents.
