Have you ever wanted to invest in real estate? Or, maybe you’ve already tried your hand at it once, and it didn’t exactly go the way you were expecting.

I’m not sure what the appeal is to investing in real estate – being a landlord is not for me – but I do get asked the question quite a bit.

3 Questions YOU MUST ASK YOUR FINANCIAL ADVISOR

Being a financial advisor for the past 16 years, I know what lies behind the curtain in our industry. And, while things are slowly becoming more transparent, we still have a long way to go before reaching complete transparency.

As a consumer, though, you only know what you’re being told or at least how much you can find from doing your research on Google. The information is out there, but only so many people have the time to find out the right questions to ask.

How 15 Minutes Could Get You 15 Times the Return

No, this isn’t some kind of get rich scheme that I’m pitching but rather something everyone who has a savings account should really consider. According to gobankingrates.com, as of April 2016, the average savings account interest rate was only .06%. That’s right, only .06%!

Believe it or not, though, I have seen many clients who branch at their local (insert giant bank name here) earning a measly .01%. That means if you had $50,000 sitting in a savings account there, your annual interest would add up to a whopping $5!

Is Passive Income Right for You?

If you’re like most people, you work a lot. These days, a growing number of Americans are working multiple jobs. Either the gigs are all part-time, or people are working on side hustles to earn extra income. 

One of the issues with the standard model of earning money is that you have to work for it. This is what’s called active income. You put in the hours, and you get a paycheck at the end of it. The more work you do, the more money you make.

Whole Life Insurance - Does It Make Sense for You?

Planning for the future often takes a backseat to today’s problems. Most people want to know their families are protected financially in case something happens to them. This is where having life insurance can make a big difference.

However, there is conflicting information out there when it comes to getting a life insurance policy. If you’ve ever worked with someone who works for an insurance company (an insurance agent...regardless of what they call themselves), you may have been pushed to a whole life insurance policy.

How to Get the Most Bang for Your Buck with Investment Properties

Whether you’re a first-time real estate investor or an experienced veteran, you can always do a little bit more to maximize profit in your investment properties. Here’s how you can get the most bang for your buck. 

Fix-and-Flip for Cheap

One of the most common types of investment properties are fix-and-flip properties. For the uninitiated, a fix-and-flip investment is when you buy a house that’s undervalued, most of the time because it’s old and run-down. You purchase it at a cheap price, fix it up and make it nice—thus improving its value—and then you sell it to make a profit.

The Easiest Ways to Save Money

Many Americans are one paycheck away from going into debt to pay for an emergency. A report by the Federal Reserve on the economic well-being of U.S. households found that 40 percent of American’s can’t afford an unexpected $400 expense. Having some extra cash can help you be prepared in case financial disaster strikes.

There are many different ways to save money – some easier than others. Pick what works for you and stick with it for a few months, setting aside the money that you save in a separate savings account. You can use the extra money to start an emergency fund or invest for retirement.

Why You Should Think Twice Before opening a 529 Through A Financial Advisor

Do you have a 529 plan? Do you work with a financial advisor? Do you have a 529 plan that’s managed directly through your financial advisor?

If you answered yes to the first question, then that’s perfectly fine. If you answered yes to the second question, that’s great as well. However, if you answered yes to the third question, well, that’s where I tend to differ from a lot of financial advisors… and yes, that’s coming from a financial advisor.

How to Create An Inheritance Plan With Your Parents

Long term financial planning is not an easy task. You have to consider a myriad of potential setbacks, changes and opportunities that will arise over an extended time period. It can be exhausting to map out your plans, but still more draining to do what you need to do when sticking to those plans. 

Fortunately, once your plans are set you can put them out of your mind unless there is a major life transition. It’s those transitions that are the hardest to plan for financially.

While we’re not going to dive into the many variables that are included in modern economics, one element that has financial analysts shook is the inverted yield curve. However, outside of stock exchanges and broker offices, chances are that you don’t understand what this curve is and what it means for the economy.
