On this new round of Ask Hilary, I’m answering some of my most-asked listener questions: how do we start off on a good foot financially? And how should we buy real estate and keep our finances in good shape? In this episode, I’m talking you through both of those processes – and giving you a ton of resources to help you along the way!
I start with my step-by-step recommendations to build a strong financial foundation. Whether you’re a listener in your twenties with your first job, your thirties with some debt to eliminate, or approaching retirement, these simple guidelines can help you build the money muscles you’ll need to save and invest intelligently for the future.
I also answer some big questions about real estate, including how to know when you’re ready to buy a house. I offer some things to keep in mind during your house search, why a house does not count as a retirement asset, and why you shouldn’t fall in love with a house.
This is just a small taste of everything covered today; scroll down for a PDF version of this episode that’s packed with tools, links, and information to help you pave the path to financial freedom!
