I have saved enough (and some) for a down payment on a house, but I am in no hurry to buy one, I might end up spending 6-12 months looking for one. I already have 1 car on finance but looking at buying another one (as both me and my wife need 1 for commuting). I am looking at buying one for ~30K. W...

I used a online saving account which is gs bank (formerly Ge bank), at the moment they're paying 1.05%. That is my emergency fund and don't plan on using unless it's a emergency.

The rental property gives us $855 a month, this is just under the monthly mortgage payment. I pay an additional $400 a month in principal.

Just stick with index funds, without knowing much about your finance its hard to say. Index funds give you more diversification, but I would consider investing only if you have a strong financial foundation. Do you have 3-6 month emergency fund? Any consumer debt or student loan? Do you have a 401k?...

I would be a bit nervous about the arm not sure what your interest rate is, but down the line I would consider refinanci...

Seem like you have a good handle on your expense. I think you should use your saving money to retire that car loan, unless you see yourself losing your job in the next couple of month. You can always rebuild your saving account.

Good luck with your descision

Welcome to the forum Tyler,
Seem like we need more information so that we can help you. Maybe you should post all of your monthly income/expense so we can see what you're working with. Also what's your short/long term goals, that way we can assess your situation.
