Making 140k Chicago and planning to buy home around 500k with 70K down (max) + Personal Avg month expense - 3K . How much I would end up paying per month mortgage + any other surprise that I am not aware ? .
When you make an offer on home what all cost you ask the seller. I am asking 3% closing, deep cleaning, 1 yr warranty on appliances. The closing in MD runs into 12-15k which is major expense so does asking seller to pay is normal practice. How long a builder installed carpet and appliances generally last assuming normal wear and tear. In 10-15 yr old house i believe most of these needs a new replacement
Don’t want wedding (looking forward to marriage). Thinking of intimate ceremony and dinner with family only. Would after party with friends feel weird? no expense would really be spared - nice location, excellent music, open bar, lots of food. Simply do not like traditional weddings (no judgement - just not for me). Reactions to this? If you were to take this approach would you do this on a different day from wedding? P.s. I know there is a wedding bowl just looking for a range of POVs

Struggling with JE’s for earnouts paid post-acquisition. Amounts were paid out to former owners in a prior period. I think the entry was Dr. accrued expense; Cr. Cash. Now it’s sitting in accrued exp, so I asked why and the client says it was wrong and is reclassing now by Dr. Investment in Sub; Cr. Accrued Exp. (Investment in sub rolls up into current liability.) Does this make sense? I’m so confused about what this should be.

Stay or Go: American Funds?
I have allocations in ANWPX, AWSHX, AGTHX. With high expense ratios and front load costs, I don’t see why I should stay with them. Im on the verge of rolling over my Roth IRA to vanguard. But I can’t quite understand why people, even in this bowl, continue to invest with them. Any staunch American Fund advocates out there? What’s an appeal to stay?

Moving into a house that I bought 3 months ago and leased back to the sellers. The sellers left it in pretty rough shape, both inside and outside. Our realtor is sending a team of cleaners and landscapers to fix it up. Our realtor stated she will cover the cost of this since the seller is unwilling to pay. What’s the etiquette around this? Should we offer to reimburse our realtor for 1/2 the cost? She’s truly done a great job throughout this process

After much hard work, I recently interviewed & was offered a VERY AMBITIOUS role however the salary offered to me was $13K LESS than the start of the range for that position!

Okay so I’m a newly licensed attorney in a very conservative part of TX. I just got my first job offer and I was worried at first thinking that I was in “Trump” territory, but I tested the waters in my interview and spoke about police injustices and how prosecutor’s job is not only to protect victims, but also defendants from police injustices. I have to let them know by tomorrow, but thoughts on if this is a good career move for someone who wants to work in transactional work-RE or Bankruptcy?
