Reader Case: Grounded in Vancouver and Dreaming of FIRE

Lately FIRECracker’s developed the bad habit of scrolling through our old travel photos (and by “old”, I mean from like 3 months ago). “Hey, cut it out!” I’d say whenever I caught her doing it. “You’re just going to make yourself feel bad.” And then she would look up at me, her lip quivering and a single tear rolling down her cheek. “I want my smokey chicken.” Well, it looks like we’re not the only one feeling this way. Hello FIRECracker and Wanderer, Greetings from here in lockdown Vancouver. Everyone says it’s so nice here, but when you’re stuck inside […]

Real Estate Agent Gets Crushed by Real Estate Math

Yikes, what a week it’s been in the news. It’s never a dull moment these days, is it? And this week is a real kicker.

Reader Case: House Horny in Florida

This morning I woke up and realized it’s been a long time since I did a rent-vs-buy reader case. So I thought I’d dust off the ol’ “Housing” Gmail folder and take one for a spin. I’m weird like that. It’s getting hot here in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and I don’t mean just the temperature. My wife and I are being tempted to buy a house (gasp!) due to rising rents and the fact that we have a little baby girl due in July 2020. We feel like we’ve been doing well in our financial situation but have gotten confused […]
