Re: Atlanta - recommendations on where to live

Thank you for your posts.

I believe she will be mostly working from home and so the commute is less of a concern. I have heard the traffic is bad. Her main priorities are schools and crime.

Atlanta - recommendations on where to live

Was inspired by a similar post asking for recommendations on where to live. Have a close friend that will be moving to the Atlanta area but could definitely use recommendations about specific areas to look into. I know she's been looking on various forums such as city-data, but as she doesn't have m...

Re: California affordable care act rates for 2014 released

Had a few comments as a current doc in training. ^ We price plans for my business every year. Year after year Kaiser is lower by at least 10% and we never use them, because the employees don't want them, they have a reputation here of being a great health insurance company for people who are well. O...

Re: benefit of buying a home now?

Unless you can tell me the future I can't answer based on financial considerations. Likely it also depends on where you are looking and possibly on what specific property you are interested in. The best time to buy a house is often when you desire to own a home. What about the future would you like...

benefit of buying a home now?

Seems home prices and interest rates are increasing and people are jumping in left and right. I was wondering which option is preferable. 1. buy house now, put down 20%+, then pay down mortgage aggressively + mortgage deductions or 2. wait a bit (several years), save aggressively, and then buy with ...

Re: California affordable care act rates for 2014 released

Okay, I get where you are coming from now. Note that I said "for equivalent coverage." It is you who are comparing apples to oranges. You are comparing cheap, crummy, low benefit, high deductible individual plans to the exchange plans. If you compare to an equivalent of the silver plan in...

Re: Assuming you do the right thing and max out for retireme

Thank you for your responses. Makes sense. Do you think a four percent real is a reasonable assumption? Any other variables that might make things more accurate? Also, what is the best way to do a similar calculation for a tax efficient taxable assuming a similar real, buy and hold, and reinvesting ...

Re: Assuming you do the right thing and max out for retireme

Thanks for your response.

Yes, those numbers look good, but when I calculate an annual contribution of ~35k (17.5 + 5500 + 5500 + 6450) over 30 years, I get 2 million --> 800-900k adjusted for inflation. Somewhat less pleasing numbers.

Assuming you do the right thing and max out for retirement

Trying to plan more for the future now that the wife is pregnant. I've tried fiddling with different calculators and wanted to see what others might have to add. Assuming one maxes out their 401k + 3% match + backdoor Roth for 20/25/30 years, what amount (assuming, say 3-4% real returns) would one r...

Re: future of medical practice - career help - physician

Thank you for all of your posts and sharing your personal experiences. I've become a strong believer in the Boglehead philosophy of living below ones means, maximizing tax advantaged space, and being responsible with one's finances, etc. It's interesting the more I think about it if and how these pr...

Re: future of medical practice - career help - physician

You can either join the big organization now or join the PP, put in sweat equity, and than become an employee in a few years along with your former partners when they sell their practice to the big organization. Do you think that's the best option? Do you think that private practice being taken ove...

Re: future of medical practice - career help - physician

Thank you for your thoughts. I work hard and do get along well with others. I think I would enjoy both private practice and working within a larger organization (based on my training experiences). I would like to clarify that I do not expect to just show up and be entitled to instant gratification. ...
