We like to articulate our thoughts and review on a Monthly basis our Financial Planning Tips, Capital Markets and current events!
Financial Planning Tip (s) –
We did have a CLUE
After almost violating our own rule, here in this updated article we reviewed the reasons not to have a claim on your insurance.
With a mini water heater retiring under its own terms but leaving a small leak and also mandating repairs… it was a great time to remind ourselves and update the article – we hope you enjoy!
Ways to Electronically Access Data
In this article we review the various ways to access our electronic information and review the major differences between our New Total Vault and just regular Account View Access.
Personal Property Tax Growth Versus Assets
With multiple comments from many directions about the rising costs of personal property we set off to do an initial analysis on just why it seems personal property taxes are digging into our pockets a bit deeper.
Our findings suggest it important to take personal property taxes into consideration, especially when dealing with our Real Estate Assets.
Capital Market Comments –
It’s all about the FOMC – Federal Open Market Committee
Last month, here in great detail the FOMC, headed by Chair Jerome Powell made statements that led market participants to expect a lowering of rates – TODAY!
If they do not lower rates later today, market participants may be disappointed…. we would not, as our beliefs are that rates cuts should be used for more pronounced economic events…. if they do lower rates, it will likely not be a continued lowering, which is a great compromise for all!
Have a Great Day – Talk to you at the end of August!
