Re: Best insurance company for auto, renters, umbrella insurance

I have all of mine through Erie Insurance. The Umbrella isn't the cheapest you can get, but the Auto and HO are very competitive. Keep in mind that your suggestions are going to vary by state.

Re: Selling to Carmax: Fix then Quote vs. Quote then Fix

Yeah, when I sold my one car at Carmax they essentially just walked around the car and looked at it, offered me a quote on the spot. They didn't even drive it. I guess he saw me pull in so he assumed it ran just fine.

I also service and maintain all of my vehicles ...

Re: WWYD? Cash in Investment to Pay Off Mortgage Question

Don't cash in your investments to pay off your mortgage. You should however start maxing out that Roth every year. With your income and being able to put away 15% for retirement that's a no brainier. Whatever you're planning on throwing at extra principal I would consider adjusting your 401k contrib...
