Buy or Rent?

I'm all for owning real estate, but it's not something that makes sense in every situation. That's the discussion with Christine from New York, who with nearly $200,000 in the bank, is trying to decide if it makes sense to finally buy a home instead of being a renter.

CBS This Morning: Spring Housing Market

Last week, the Federal Reserve decided not to raise interest rates. The more dovish Fed outlook pushed down interest rates, which led mortgage rates to 14-month lows. The current 30-year fixed rate loan stands at just under 4.3 percent, just in time for the spring home buying season. I joined CBS This Morning to discuss.

First Time Home Buyer Tips 2019

First Time Home Buyer Tips 2019

Spring home buying season has arrived and with wages up, mortgage rates down and inventory slowly increasing, many first time buyers are ready to enter the market. Before you get sucked into the vortex of never-ending open houses (say goodbye to your weekends!), you need to guard against the emotional pull that real estate creates, especially for those who have never gone through the process before.

We kicked things off this week with Brad from Missouri who's wondering if he needs to enlist the help of a CFP as he tries to get his financial life in order.

Next up was Risa from Scottsdale, AZ who wanted to know whether or not she and her husband should pay off the mortgage on a piece of rental property they have.

As we've been doing, hour two was devoted to the email inbox.

First Time Home Buyer

We start this week talking real estate.

Buy versus rent is one of my favorite topics. While owning property can certainly make for a great investment, I don’t always think it’s the right move. Sometimes it makes far more financial sense to rent.

That’s the case with our first caller this week, Lamar from New Jersey. Lamar and his wife have already gone down the road of buying a house, and while I certainly hope it works out for them, I don’t necessarily think it was the best. Give it a listen and you’ll hear what I mean.

Yep, you guessed it, hour two is nothing but emails as we continue to dig out from an overflowing inbox.

Roth Conversion and Rent vs Buy

We start the show this weekend with a call from Mike in the midwest who is wondering if it makes sense to start converting some of his traditional IRA money into a Roth.

Next up was Alan from the Bay Area with a question that never gets old: should I rent or should I buy? That’s the decision facing Alan and his wife.

The recent trend continues as hour two is nothing but emails as we continue to dig out from an overflowing inbox.
