re: At what point and age did your 401k really start to grow? - stevengtiger on 9/15/17 at 8:20 am
I am having the same issues as the OP as far as not seeing much movement but know it will just take time. IMO, 401K is just one of those financial rules you follow and it will pay off over the on long term. Set it up, get a company match and check it every other month or so. Ride out any downturns w...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Two questions No Colors. - How much for a 69Q? I know you mentioned early on that you would store any extras that were not formally ordered in Ridgeland. I am around there at least a few times a year and would definitely pick one up. - I know you mentioned you were in the lumber/sawmill busin...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote] I could do it, but if it turns out bad, I'm out $550 with nothing to show. [/quote] $550 is about right for what I'm guessing is a decent sized and nice home. If the goal is to refi, I would not wait too much longer. Rates are going up now and I suspect they will continue to slowly ri...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]I don't want a Zillow estimate to trick me into a reappraisal and find out I'm still $15,000 away[/quote] Bottom line is to not trust Zillow, Trulia, etc. with appraisal value of any property you buy/own. Pay someone a few hundred and get it right. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Zillow Website Property Estimates - stevengtiger on 8/8/17 at 10:27 am
[quote]Does Zillow usually overestimate or underestimate what your actual appraisal told you?[/quote] From my experience, they tend to over estimate. I have read the opposite too on other forums. I just pulled up two of my rental properties and both of their estimates are about 20% higher tha...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

The above poster that you commented on. Mentioned they did this when they retired. Doing my best to accomplish retirement by 55. ETA: Again, I don't think there is anything wrong with doing that. It would be a good alternative to home ownership at any age, if that is your goal. ...

[quote]It's hard to beat - free utilities, nice scenery, free lot rent. With some of the jobs they even pay you an hourly wage on top of the free stuff.[/quote] I am not saying there is anything wrong with this, but there is no way that I will work until I'm 55-60 to do this. Sure renting is...

re: Career Advice - stevengtiger on 7/20/17 at 4:24 pm
This may be way off of what you are thinking, but you could always look into some type of loss control engineer position. In my industry (property insurance), loss control specialists travel, make a decent beginning salary, deal with owners/management of businesses. It can be a very good career ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
