529 question: does fidelity allow you to buy a specific state 529 e.g. New York through their website, or do you have to go through the New York 529 website

My fiancé and I (ages 30 and 31) are about to buy a house. We would put down 10% for a 835k purchase price. Our combined income is $265k. We both have around 7-10k left in emergency funds (each) and combined about 200k for retirement. Our mortgage is $4,500 a month and we split a car payment for $800. Is this an okay financial decision or should we have bought a cheaper house/saved more?

Has anyone read the book Divorce the IRS by James Miller? I recognize that it’s a relatively new book so not that many people have probably had the chance to read it. But my mind is blown. Should I be pursuing a Roth 401k and not traditional 401k? It seems that even if I retire early, the Roth 401k provides way more tax advantages than traditional. Am I missing something?
