Re: A family father's path through life

I have also finished reading Hiromi Shinya's "The rejuvenation enzyme": a book I bought some time ago at the airport.. Unfortunately I don't know enough to validate or reject many of it's contents, so I'll just quote the "Seven Golden Keys for Good Health" in the end of the book: 1. GOOD DIET You sh...

It's been long since the last time I wrote here. Together between work and sleep deprivation I haven't had the time nor the will to work on my objectives..

Re: How Will My Fascination with ERE Affect My Marriage?

Rather than forcing your DH to play with you on the low end of the curve you might try meeting him in the middle and looking for that good-deal inflection point as a team. Maybe homemade cheese isn't his thing, but finding his favorite inexpensive Gruyere would be considered a fun challenge for an ...

Re: SWB's path to financial independence

Glad it helped! ;) My problem is that I think the local market is overpriced and will likely correct (go down in value) in the next 5 years. If the market correction is due to BIG change in demand / offer (expected large decrease of population or huge increase in offer due to construction boom) it w...

Re: SWB's path to financial independence

You are dealing here with two different decisions: a) rent vs buy Here you can see the amortization table . With your data it means on average (for the first 5 years) $ 220 every month to principal and $ 518 for the bank. So your calculation should look like: 5 x 12 x (1750 - (1026 - 220 + 1800/12))...

Re: SWB's path to financial independence

Excuse me SWB, but there's something I don't understand: Renting is 1.750 x 12 = 21.000 $ per year Buying is 185.000 $ (=8.8 years' rent???) I understand the renting potential of the 185k house won't be 1.750 $/m, is it? Besides, following your numbers, which part of the 1.026 $ per month will be pr...
