Yes, if you're willing to put down money you could buy a more expensive house.

| Money Talk|| re: Honda Pilot of Explorer? - kaaj24 on 1/5/13 at 8:42 am|
The redesign wouldn't impact my buying decision unless there was some feature you really wanted. A car is a depreciating asset and neither model year is going to offset that.
I personally wouldn't buy the first model year of any significant redesign so they can work any bugs out....

| Money Talk|| re: Value of a MBA vs Accounting degree? - kaaj24 on 7/31/12 at 8:56 pm|
CPA will carry more weight than an MBA unless at a top tier school.
If you have an undergrad in business, an MBA is redundant. I've worked for a couple of very large organizations including a Fortune 20 company. MBAs didn't have any clout unless from a top tier school.

I've switched jobs a couple of times over the last 12 years so, different 401k, Ira rollovers, etc. So calculating a return would take awhile.
But I graduated in 2000 so I feel your pain of not getting historical market returns over that period. Hopefully next 30 years will treat us better.........
