Anyone knows if it is easier to get a mortgage for an investment property than for second home? Mortgage specialist from a bank I worked with for my first purchase said rates would be a bit higher for rental property and cannot use gift money for downpayment. How does rental income come into place in the whole process? How can potential rental income reduce my rates or upfront cash outflow? Also should I use the same bank for this second mortgage? Any recommendations? Thank you in advance.

My employer isn’t safe harbor and we fail the nondiscrimination testing for 401K each year which results in me getting back roughly 9K of the $19.5K max. I generally end up putting the refund disbursement into my brokerage account. Given that I can only historically contribute $10K to 401K, what would others recommend I do with the $9/9.5K difference other than putting it in a non-tax advantage brokerage account? I already do a backdoor Roth IRA and HSA. Do I have any other options?

I have almost $200,000 in cash and I’m not sure what to do with it. I started out saving the extra money I didn’t need to pay of my almost $190k in student loans (gov’t 5-7% interest) while payments were paused, but now that I have enough to pay them off I’m not sure that would be the best use of the money or if it would be better to use it on something else like a down payment. My distaste for non-dischargable debt is definitely a factor. Anyone ever been in a similar situation?
