Retirement with Homeownership

Years ago I remember my uncle coming into the family dining room with two stacks of receipts - each a few inches high. He had saved 23 years worth of rent receipts from his then landlord (there were other landlords before that). He was trying to make a point to the family - he had rent receipts - his landlord had the building. My uncle had no equity to fall back on - nothing. He had receipts. Getting to ownership may require sacrifices along the way but there are plenty of advantages. A home could also be your largest asset. See what you think - checkout this latest article

APPLE

OK - so I am the proud owner of an iPad (original model) and an iPhone 6 (newest model) and hopefully one day, a MAC Air (Santa - are you listening). I also have a Samsung Chromebook for easy maintenance and lightweight travel. But I have been a desktop PC guy since the dawn of creation (my HP is over 6 years old as of July 3rd). Of all the tech companies to do business with, Apple is the best for quality and support. Last night I found myself in need of help - I am thinking maybe the 3rd time that I have needed Apple to rescue me - and that they did. Mind you, it was nothing simple and I first talked with a level 1 support person and then to a group leader or some such title (heck, if you are going to cause trouble, why not make it interesting - right?). Both were incredibly helpful and not only fixed the problem but explained the solution in terms I could clearly understand. No one asked me to buy a support contract, no one said that will be $$ before we can help you - nope, just there to help me make the connection from planet earth to the cloud in the way I needed it to work. Great company Apple. Thank you!

Today's opportunity may be lost forever. No one has a crystal ball and no one know for certain. But what of lost opportunity? Waiting and hoping for a better time as we move toward a recovery could me higher prices on homes and high interest rates. That combination could mean inability to buy or buying a lesser value home than you can qualify for now. Read more
