re: What would you say the best financial decision you ever made was? - kaaj24
Buying a house in N. Dallas in September 2010. Near the bottom of the market. Want to purchase a rent house but keep talking myself out of it as I think real estate prices will correct as home price appreciation is outpacing employees income increases. Doesn't seem sustainable....

re: What year would you say was the impetus of the craft beer movement? - kaaj24

re: Quit teaching, what to do with retirement? - kaaj24

Passive income isn't something that doesn't require some level of effort. Many people don't want exert that ex...

re: South Padre, TX - kaaj24
I appreciate the feedback. So you don't think it is worth it for even a long weekend in November? We were thinking of going somewhere "warmer" for Thanksgiving since we aren't going to be able to spend time with our family at that time....

re: Target Date Retirement Funds - kaaj24
I believe target dates make sense for people who don't like to overthink retirement planning. If you haven't already I would consider talking to a fee only financial advisor to assess your overall plan/goals as retirement is not to far off for you....

My wife will have a pension. Social security will be around as too many people don't save even if at reduced benefits. How much to save for retirement is different for everyone. I'm comfortable at 12 times income as I'm not a spender and don't plan to live any different in retirement. Lots of...

re: Realistic Retirement Amount and Age - kaaj24
My target is 12 times income at 65. House will be paid-off. I don't live an fancy life style now and don't imagine it'll change much. Honestly, I think my costs will go down in retirement. I won't be saving for retirement, I'll clean my own house, and do yard work myself....
