My market investments (brokerage and retirement) just passed 300k (a huge milestone IMO). Pretty stoked. Probably not reaching $1mil by 40 (a goal I set for myself a long time ago), but I'm a lot closer than I was. I'm 34.

Awesome. You should invest in real estate :)

A pretty broad distribution of mutual funds, ETFs, and a few stocks. I couldn't list them all, but my best performers are some real estate and tech funds I bought in 2008/9. I feel super lucky to have been able to buy at the trough.

I have my house, which by stroke of luck has appreciated $150k since I bought it, but I haven't delved into real estate yet. In a super hot market atm (hence the large appreciation), but I'd like to.

Congrats OP: care you share what your investments are?

Nice work - assuming no market crashes should start hitting a snowball accumulation rate soon.

@pwc1 I expect a pretty large crash sometime soon. At least I saw it get here, and I know it will again. 😁

I'm thinking something more like summer of 2011 than broad based selling.

First house is currently valued at 900k (bought at 500k 7 years ago). We are considering a move to a LCOL city to try it out.

Should we rent it out for $3800/month to make money while keeping it as rental properties or sell it so we can buy a new home property and then invest the rest? Looks like getting financing for second home is pretty tough.

House is in Arlington VA if it matters.

Any thoughts on where to park about 40k for the short term (3-6 months).? Half of it is part of a new long term investment strategy to which I will be adding about 2.5k/ month and the other half is earmarked for home improvement/ vacations.

I’d like to try to get some upside while limiting risk...Yes, I understand the basics of investing and why this is a bit of a ridiculous ask. I’m just concerned we are heading toward a cliff and don’t want to be down when I need the earmarked half.

I’m a designer in the planning/landscape architecture dept. of a CE firm. Extremely frustrated that after 4+ years and multiple asks, I’m not getting the in-field construction experience I’ve asked for. I know that my designs could be better if I could see how things are actually built but I get slapped in the face with “I need you in the office designing/drafting” or “there’s no budget to have you go out” and then sends an intern to inspect instead. I’m 5 yrs out of college. Any advice?
