Re: Today I call on the PP for a service

Just to follow up on this - I sold off about 350k of the PP to help purchase our other house cash. The locked in the 4% interest payment per we would have paid carrying a mortgage until the other house sold, and also saved about 2.5k in closing. The old house quickly though, so the better decision w...

Re: Today I call on the PP for a service

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I think you're right in saying that the PP needs to stay balanced. I've decided to sell off a balanced chunk of my PP that has some gains and buy the house cash. It will be much easier on my mind in case it takes time to sell the other. 2k/month interest payments on...

Re: Today I call on the PP for a service

Option 1. The worst possible time to drain yourself of cash is when you're buying a home. Talk to your real estate agent about alternatives? There are lots of other ways to manage this situation without having to resort to a mortgage and all the pain that entails. (Btw there is no such thing as "no...

Today I call on the PP for a service

I own my current home with no mortgage. I'm buying a new one and plan to do the same via a no closing cost mortgage paid off quickly after the current home sales. So buy a new home first then sell the current one to pay the mortgage. I have two options : 1 - put down 20% on a new home and take the r...

Vanguard Solo 401 Downside

I've been the contribution to my solo 401k,and from what I understand I should be putting LTB in this tax deferred account. I'm currently doing that in my taxable directly through the bond desks. What are the downsides to using vanguards bonds as an alternative, or should I just move over to fidelity?

Solo 401k - who to seek for help

I own an LLC. Unfortunately don't have a retirement setup yet, but I know a solo 401k is a good fit. My CPA only wants to be told what to do and won't advise me. Should I seek out a financial advisor for help with a solo 401k or are they just going to try and push their products on me? I actually se...
