re: Consolidating and refinancing student loan debt - Wade Phillips
If it's at 4-6% and you plan to pay off quickly, I think I would skip the hassle of refinancing. With mortgage rates up right now, you'll pay much more in the long run by refinancing the house. At best and with great credit, you could get the student loans in the 3% range with private company refi (...

re: 2016 Ford F150 Lariat.... - Wade Phillips
This time last year, I was able to get a good deal on a 2015 lariat that had sat on the lot a while. Able to get all the rebate incentives and 0% for 72 months. Don't let them tell you they can't do it. It took leaving the dealership on 3 separate occasions, but they can do it. I can't remember exac...

re: Real Estate Lawyer - Wade Phillips
I would be skeptical of any attorney charging less than $200/hr. I'd expect to pay $250/hr or so for a quality lawyer that can capably handle residential acquisition/disposition and title/land use issues. Assuming your transactions are based off of promulgated forms, this attorney should be well ver...

re: Athens, GA - Wade Phillips
Lived there for several years. Hit up World Famous for good food and drinks. Last Resort is a must. Going to the breweries is good advice (especially Creature Comfort - walking distance). The beauty of Athens is you can walk a few blocks popping in and out of bars until you find a scene that you pre...

re: Anyone done a backdoor IRA? - Wade Phillips
[quote]Usually a backdoor roth IRA means that you make too much income to make a normal roth IRA contribution, so instead you make a traditional IRA contribution (no income limits there), then convert it to a Roth. [/quote] I'm wondering about this process as you've described, if you would be so ...

For example, I paid a balance due on my room charges that was supposed to be equal to $571 but the CC exchange came out to $610. Not awful but probably could be beat. ...

re: Tulum, Mexico Review (January 2017) - Wade Phillips
[quote]Did none of the restaurants take credit cards?[/quote] Almost everywhere was cash only. And using my credit card for the hotel subjected me to the CC company's exchange rate, which proved less favorable than I may have found had I searched around and traveled with pesos. That being sa...

re: Tulum, Mexico Review (January 2017) - Wade Phillips
Part II: Pro Tip: My only regret was not bringing Pesos. I WAY overestimated the desire for the USD with the Peso struggling in comparison. The exchange rate when I went was roughly 21:1. The restaurants and bars only wanted to give credit for 15:1. There were a couple times the exchange rate on...

re: Vacation in March. Mexico/Central/South America - Wade Phillips
Just returned from Tulum and very much enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend as a nice mix of sparse crowd but still people walking the beaches and restaurants/shops for the ladies. Very relaxing vibe. Will be returning. ...
