You'd probably consider what we own to be a large townhouse, but a duplex would work just as well if those are available in your area.
As you may be aware, the real benefit to multi families is in the tax deductions - you can write off expenses such as property taxes, interest, insurance, repai...

You don't need a car in Playa del Carmen whatsoever
My wife and I rode the bus to PdC from Cancun Int'l for around $7 apiece. Quick and comfortable. They leave every 30-45 minutes or so if memory serves
If you're afraid of the bus, get taxi service. Expect $40-50 each way after tip
| Money Talk|| re: DRIP program recommendations - Feed Me Popeyes on 6/13/14 at 7:38 am|
I read good things about Loyal3. Limited selection of maybe 50 stocks, but lots of major blue chip dividend growers if that's what you're after. Aside from free trades, they allow you to buy fractional shares and you can put it on a credit card so you get rewards as well. Downsides are no IRA opti...

fly to Cancun, then bus to Merida (if you like city) or Tulum/Playa del Carmen (if you like beach). Eat, drink, and sleep like a champ for very little. You can usually fly to Cancun for under $400 from most places in the US
skip the boring all-inclusive resorts on the "Riviera Maya"...

I don't think everybody is trying to push buying because it's an amazing deal. Cars are generally a money pit regardless of whether you buy or lease
I think the point everybody is trying to get across is that unless you end up with a POS used car, buying used almost always puts you ahead of leas...

Dump as much as you can into tax-deferred accounts as you can. Continuously buy index funds in those accounts and never touch any of it. It may not sound sexy, but doing this will virtually guarantee that you will be wealthy at retirement. The math is actually pretty simple if you have the discip...

That's not nearly enough of a raise to consider leaving an ideal work situation for a more expensive living situation.
