Yeah the debate is mainly do want to be a landlord for one home, what you could do is sell one, pay off the mortgage for the other home. Live mortgage free and for a year and stack a down payment for your family home. At 300-400k comp, you can safely afford probably 5.0k principle, interest, property tax and insurance (piti). This would be about 800k loan depending on rate. A good rule of them is spend a max 30% of take home comp on home payments.

Many candidates reject an offer from a company after getting the offer letter because they got a better offer elsewhere. So companies say that this costs them a lot. I want to understand what is this cost. Its not like they had to pay a person some money even if the candidtae didn't join. Also the joining bonus is paid after a candidate joins and is usually returned if left before a yr. So what cost do they talk about?

My firm has a collections budget (80% of your billable rate x 1850 hours) and an hourly budget that must be met in order to be eligible for a bonus. The firm cares very little about originations and will reward someone for making their collections over someone who brings in new work. I missed my collection budget due to some odd timing with a client, but originated more than all my peers so no bonus for me. I’ve been at this same mid level firm for 9 years and it’s all I know. Is this normal??
