Money Maxim

Joseph Hogue Money Maxim 34

“Don’t sweat the petty things, don’t bet the sweaty things.”

Action Items

Set a budget where you can enjoy yourself: avoid the yoyo-spending splurge!

Have a financial partner in crime you can share your finances with.

Consider what you know about your finances and your partners finance (or what you may expect from a future partner). Do you know if they have debt? Do you know their spending habits? What level of information is good to know about that person? Talk to them about it. It’s a good conversation to have. If you need help, or want a 3rd party to help mediate or work on things together, contact me! I’d love to help

(would someone think it’d be cool for me to create a “NewlyWed Financial Checklist” or topics to discuss before marriage about money? Let me know in the comments or email me 😉 If there’s interest I’ll invest the time in research and make something awesome for my lovely listeners!)

Episode #14: Thinking of Homes With Seth Worthen of Osmond Real Estate




Download This Episode

Seth Worthen HeadShotBio: Seth Worthen was born and raised in Utah County. He graduated from Mountain View High School and is currently attending BYU studying Political Science. He is happily married and is expecting a baby in December. Seth is fascinated by all things real estate!

Show Description: Today Seth Worthen and I talk about the basics of buying a home, preparing for owning vs renting, important costs to consider when buying and maintaining a home, and the proper mindset to be in when you think about buying a home. We also take a moment to talk about the questions you should ask professionals to find the right professionals to work with.

ShowNotes:

  • 1:45 – How to Finance a Home: DownPayments
  • 2:20 – Programs for first time home buyers
  • 4:07 – Positives and Negatives of 0-down options
  • 6:30 – When people say “Buy a Bigger House”

  • 19:45 – Deciding where you want to buy your house. “Must Haves” “Would Like” Lists.
  • 24:50 – Getting What You Want From Your Agent – Setting Expectations

Money Maxim

Seth Worthen Money Maxim

“You’re not dating a home, you’re buying it”

“Money is Not the End, And It’s Not A Means To An End. The End Is Your Life Goals”

“Do Your Best, And Money Will Be There”

Action Items

Cognizantly decide to be renting, or to be in a mortgage.

If you’re renting, consider what you want to buy, and why. When? Where is the money coming from to pay for the home? What level of savings do you want/need to feel comfortable, and to afford a downpayment? Would you use a 0-down option if it was available?

Know your budget before you go into buy. Meet with a counsellor or expert (there may be a cost, but it’s worth it!) to figure out what you are comfortable with and what different price ranges will mean on your cash flow and savings.

If an agent pushes you to ‘buy now‘, that’s a warning sign! They should know the market, learn your situation, and never push you to buy until you’re ready. (there’s a difference between pushing you, and helping you to take action you want and are a little nervous about)

Listen to the segment from 19:45 – 22:15. What are your “Must Haves”. What are you “Would Likes” What’s the difference between the two?

Action Items

There’s nothing inherently wrong with spending money, but make sure you’re setting some aside for a rainy day, or in the case of a disaster like loss of a job, or a medical surprise, or an unexpected car accident or water heater breaking.

Create a mindset of saving, it carries on. Even if its $50 a month, start saving something now!

If you aren’t meeting your financial goals. Find a solution: be proactive in finding a better job, or finding a job, or working enough hours to make the money you want.

If you’re starting or considering a side-hustle. You must commit. No dabbling, or ‘trying’. Set high expectations of what you’re going to put in, and expect it to take longer than you think it’ll take.

“You Can’t Spend The Same Dollar Twice” – Paul Vasey

Action Items

  • Start saving $100 (or your choice, $10, $25, $50, $500) a month more than you currently are. Create a second bank account, or an extra checking account for that money. Make it a challenge with a friend to see who can save the most in a set period of time! (Loser pays for bowling!)
  • Quickly calculate your hourly wage. Take 3 zeros off the end and divide in 2. ($60,000 a year = 60 /2 = $30 an hour roughly).
  • Consider your next few purchases with that wage in mind. Is it worth that much of your time for this object/experience?
  • Consciously think about time you “Spend”, start thinking about how you’re “Investing” that time. Comment what that means to you below!
