What does retirement look like for you? Do you dream of golf outings, spa treatments, travel,
and eating at nice restaurants? Or, do you want to live a little more simply – card games, time
with friends and family, meals at home, reading? Do you know how much you’ll need to just live
versus living your dreams?
So you messed up in 2013. The good news is that in most cases, it’s not difficult to get back on track. Here’s what you need to do now to correct 2013’s financial mistakes.
Many people find it a struggle to pay their bills – especially as they age.
So if you find yourself observing your parents or an elderly relative in need of a helping hand, here are a few of many issues to consider:
Everyone knows that saving for retirement is important. Doing so at early ages certainly has its advantages.
Graduating from college comes with a lot of emotions - you're anxious to start the next chapter of your life. You're sad you have to leave all of your friends from school. Lastly, you're stressed because you're trying to figure out how in the world you're going to pay back your student loans.
Every so often it's good to have a plan, especially when it comes to finances.
You like to save money on your groceries, clothes, and other merchandise, right? So why is it that many Americans pass up the opportunity to save hundreds of dollars to put towards medical expenses each year?
If you’re thinking about doing a few home improvements, you may want to consider what will give you the best return on your investment down the road.
According to the Remodeling 2013 Cost vs. Value Report (www.costvsvalue.com)*, you will recoup the most cost from a steel entry door replacement and a garage door replacement in the Indianapolis area. These two improvements may not be at the top of your list, but you’ll recover about 79.3% of the entry door cost and 68.7% of the garage door replacement cost. Entry door replacement even ranks as the number one project in the U.S. for a return on remodeling. Third runner up is a minor kitchen remodel. You’ll potentially earn around 66.1% of the amount you put into it (ex. paying around $18,433 with a resale value of $12,193).
