I would ask the person that posted this exact question yesterday.


Not asking about investing…would you buy some furniture? Take a vacation? Buy a car ?

I dont understand the point of this question but I would invest the cash, regardless of it being paycheck, bonus, commission, tips, windfall gain, found in sock drawer, handed by rando on street, lying on the pavement, proceeds from crime, printed at home, monopoly money.

Thoughts on fundrise?


Having equity tied up in the house is a waste imo. I have 300K in equity. I’d be better off if I sell and move and put most of that into stocks. In 30 yrs, the returns will outdo any home appreciation. Thoughts?


Hi everyone! I’m a young professional right out of college getting into investing and personal finance management. Trying to better understand and educate myself on personal finance and investment strategies. Can someone recommend some recourses (books, podcasts, experts to follow, etc.) where it’s clearly explained for beginners? Trying to make sense of 401Ks, Roth IRAs, emergency funds etc.

Looking at houses around $800k. Just got introduced to the idea of a jumbo loan…. I have about $125,000 in equity in my current house, which will probably be closer to $100k by the time closing is done. My local lender is requiring 20% down on a jumbo loan, which I don’t have. My first question is—does anyone know of a lender who doesn’t require 20% on a jumbo? Second, I have about $100k equity in a rental property but lender requires 40% down on investment properties for a HELOC. Help!
