Thoughts on Real Estate

In case you hadn’t noticed, real estate is all the rage right now. All the realtors you know who were broke from 2009-2012 are now living the lives of rock stars as the real estate market across the country has jumped almost 10 percent over last year, which is amazing considering we were in the midst of a pandemic.

Last-minute Tax Tips

It’s just about time to dive in and get your taxes done (or see if your accountant has a last-minute appointment!), so we wanted to take some time to give you a few last-minute tips for your 2020 taxes.

Do Old Allocation Rules Still Apply?

It seems we live in the best of times and the worst of times simultaneously, and from what I’m seeing on my social media feeds, people appear to be split on which one they think we’re in! Despite that, there’s still the age-old question about that rule of thumb that investors should hold a stock percentage of 100 minus their age.

The Gift of Time

Over the last year, I’ve come to realize that of all the things we value on earth, time is perhaps more valuable than any of us realized.

Now, well, it’s a good thing we’re still here, and have a little more time to enjoy life.

Giving Money is About More than the Money

One joy I have been given over two decades as a financial planner is seeing how people choose to bless their loved ones. In the financial world, the gift of love often means helping grandkids with college costs, leaving an estate to future generations, an alma mater, favorite charity or church.

Love on a Budget

This got me wondering what some of my creative employees were planning to do with their loved ones this weekend, and what they’d do if they had $100 to spend, and I wanted to share some of their ideas here.

GameStop: What Was That?!

So, what is a short, you’re wondering? A short is when a share of stock is sold with the intention of buying it back at a cheaper price. It’s akin to selling your house to someone who’ll pay full market value because you think it’s overvalued, and you planning to buy it back after the market plunges.

What to Expect, What to Open

Before we close out the first month of 2021, I wanted to take the time to go over a few logistical reminders, and cover a few things about what to expect when working with our team. We’ve made a few staff updates and additions, and I also want to remind you which mailers require your attention and which ones are less urgent.

Our Take on the Economic Outlook

Well, we have a new president! And given that this is day two, I’m assuming the world hasn’t ended, and that you’re not about to sell everything off and go into hiding (please, don’t!).
