Experienced investors, buying my first rental property for 168k. For primary property I know it make sense to get the lowest rate by putting down as much as possible. But for this one I'm getting 25% down at 2.875% and 20% down at 3.625% no points. Saving 8400 in upfront costs with 20% down. What do I do? Also going to fix it up estimated costs 15k.

What is right mortgage rate strategy for first time homebuyer - 2.6% with 1.5k lender credit or 2.5 with 1.8k points fee fee. I am leaning towards 2.5 with assumption that I will be able to refinance in future with 2.4 when rates go down further. What would be your choice

Advice needed: I started with a small company ~6 months ago and one of the big selling points for me to take the job was to get my clearance back. I previously had a TS but left the public sector for ~a year which made it inactive. I was told by the recruiter several times that they would put me in to have my TS reinstated but if it couldn’t be, Secret at minimum. Fast forward 6mo and I received a clearance lower than Secret due to the nature of work. (Cont in comments)

I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.
I think (fingers crossed) that I am about to get a job offer for a management role. It would be a 45 percent pay increase and I honestly might be able to negotiate it to up to 55, but I just don’t feel excited about it. It’s a smaller company then where I am now, but still a decent size and great reputation, but the team is much smaller. I really want to be more excited because I know it’s a good opportunity. Any advice?
