Open a Child IRA, with Chris Carosa [MTI173]

Could a child invest enough by age 18 to have enough money at retirement – even if he/she never saved another dime?

Chris Carosa wants children to have a “Child IRA” available from birth – giving the money enough time to compound into $2.2 million dollars before they turn 70.

The minor has to have income, which he admits is difficult for a new born baby. However, Chris offers ways young children can earn a reasonable amount of earned income in which to invest.

Does that sound good to you? It will after you listen to this episode of the Money Tree Investing Podcast.

Invest in Bitcoin, Roth IRA, and mREITs from Your Listener Letters – MTI168

Listener Letters came in about buying company stock at a 15% discount and dumping it the same day, mREIT investing, taking money out of a ROTH to retire early, and starting a podcast about investing in Bitcoin.

 

Drew: Investing in all the right ways, including the ESPP at his workplace. His company offers a 15 percent discount on the company stock, which he plans to sell the same day he acquires them. Is this a good idea?

 

Ivan: Ivan bought a mREIT, but didn’t quite understand all the intricacies of such an investment. We go through the definition of what a mREIT is and what to look out for.

 

Jason: Contemplating taking money out of his ROTH IRA before full retirement age. Is there any way he can avoid paying the penalty? Could he use Rule 72T?

 

Todd: I want to start a financial podcast about Bitcoin. What do you think?

When a Home is an Investment with Dan Green – MTI167

Is your personal residence an investment?

Many people think so, and it certainly can be counted towards your net worth – but where does your home fit into an investment portfolio?

Dan Green, Founder of Growella.com, says:

  • There’s lots of utility in renting. You can get a lot for less money without a longer-term committment.
  • Owning a home has expenses that come with it.
  • You should budget 1.5% of the home’s value towards repairs.

 

There are costs to consider when buying a home as an investment:

  • Real Estate Taxes
  • Home Owner’s Insurance
  • Other applicable insurances like Flood Insurance
  • Alarm systems or monitoring
  • Liability Insurance

 

The benefits can come in other ways. Dan Green talks about Emotional Return:

  • Over time you can see the value of your property go up
  • You have a place to store your things
  • You can customize the appearance and utility of the place where you live
  • The comfort of knowing a landlord won’t evict you

 

The benefits further compound if you purchase a multi-unit residence. You live in one unit and rent out the other(s).

You can listen to ways a 4-unit property qualifies for FHA loans with Brandon Turner from BiggerPockets
