We have a Megatel. Very happy so far.

“Good / competitive price” is a bit vague without relative context - but generally for our area the answer is yes. Bought at $550k about 4.5 yrs ago, and current comps in our neighborhood are $600k - $650k.

We have had an American legend and now a highland. I found a neighborhood with a different builder that I loved but the neighborhood also included Megatel and my real estate agent pushed us against that neighborhood just because Megatel was in it. She said they were not great.

This is our second home we have built. Highland has been great to work with. In general when building I think the biggest things you don’t think about are plugs and light switches. You also have to fully ask about what you’re getting. Pay close attention to the house blueprints when you walk through them with your construction manager.

My parents sold their house and aren’t sure what to do with the cash (currently ~700k sitting in a bank account). What’s the best option for them considering they’re nearing retirement? CDs, bonds, index funds, or something else? For context, they are immigrants who built up wealth slowly without much financial awareness, so they’re asking me for help. Thank you in advance!

We bought a 2bd condo 5-6 years back for 300k which has increased to 500k now - approx 10% annual return. Do not plan to sell it. Thinking of buying another condo in same complex for for 550k, which has appreciated in the value the same way.. 300k to 550k in last 5 years. Not sure how far it can grow... but have had decent returns so far. Should we wait or pull the trigger?both are investment properties.

I just went through a rough time dealing with depression, PTSD, and anxiety. I didn’t seek help earlier because I didn’t want to appear weak or less capable than my male counterparts. I tried to ignore the elephant in the room and it almost cost me too much. I am glad that someone convinced me to seek professional help. That was the best decision. If you’re struggling with stress at work, let me tell you: your mental health is more valuable! Reach out and talk to someone. It can save your life.
