Apparently CapOne is very difficult about downgrading. I would just keep trying with different reps.

Living in Van. Previously lived in Toronto. Obviously rent prices are high as is cost of living. Generally go out and spend more often living in a city. Boyfriend and I on good salary but not saving much due to the above. Before we move home to our own country, we’d love to spend a year close to Vancouver where rent is cheaper, temptation is less, to save. A commute to Vancouver 1-2 times a month needs to be possible (his job). That can be a flight if it’s not crazy. Thoughts? Recommendations?

Looking for some advice/suggestions here. 24 years old, TC is now 110k. I have 40k cash savings. $6,500 in my 401k and $6,400 in Roth IRA. Just was promoted and wondering if that’s too much cash to hold onto AND if contributing to a Roth makes sense. I contribute 7% with 100% match and 10% profit sharing at the end of the year to the 401k. Contributing $550 a month to the Roth. Would appreciate any ideas as I know it’s a good spot but just wanted to see if it’s the smartest approach.

I am currently building a house and talking with my insurance agent. The builder is requiring us to get builders risk insurance to cover if an event happens during the build. The insurance agent is telling me this policy needs to be bundled with the home owners insurance. And the builders risk is removed once the home is built. However, they are expecting us to pay the full premium for the home owners + builders risk - which doesn’t make sense to me. Has anyone had to deal with this before?
