Tips for how you’re accumulating wealth with absolutely no financial inheritance/intelligence from parents? I want to retire early but am late in the investments game. I have a Roth IRA invested in a target date fund, max out my HSA and invest in REITS and ETFS, and contribute more to 401k when I have leftover $$. What do you guys do? Am i missing any smart moves here?

Homebuyers: how did you decide when to put in an offer? We’ve been looking around for about 2-3 weeks (in the East Bay, FWIW). A house we were interested in dropped the listing price by $27K on Friday and then today, our agent texted me saying that the selling agent was “begging for contracts”. We really like the house but there are a few downsides. With the housing market seemingly slowing down, we’re also afraid of buying at the peak of the market. Looking for any wisdom or advice. TIA!

Finally got a job offer to be an HR manager (I’d be a department of one) after 5 weeks unemployed of hard searching and connecting with recruiters. However, when I told them my salary range of $75-95k (my last job was 95k) they told me the budget was 65-80 which was fine. Verbal offer was $70k. I feel a little disrespected by this offer and want to counter with $80k. There’s many red flags already but UI may require I accept in which case I’m gonna keep job searching despite the salary. Advice?

For those of you with student loans, has your strategy changed now that mortgage rates are increasing? I have $230k in federal loans. I’ve been saving during the student loan pause and will have $180k as of 12/31 when payments resume. I was going to put most of it to student loans, but now that mortgage rates are surpassing my student loan rates, I’m second guessing this. Some more details on comments.
