Reader Case: Keep Calm and FIRE On
It’s Friday, and you know what that means: Reader Case Time! Today’s reader case comes from Jolly Old England. Well, it used to be Jolly.

Reader Case: Should I Buy a House as a Passive Investment?
It’s Friday, and you know what that means: Reader Case time! Today’s reader case comes from a familiar place: A Canadian wanting to buy a house because they want to use it as a “passive investment.” Hoo boy. Now I know that it may seem like we have a bit of an anti-housing bias on this site, but we’re not actually anti-housing as much as we are pro-math.
