My fiance as well as I are opposites when it comes to finances, and my fiance is all about acquiring assets, then he mainly just wants to get rental properties.
He has a single family home as well as a duplex that he rents out, i love to save money as well as I will occasionally put some in the stock market, and the two of us both want a pool though.
I recommended that both of us save up the money as well as buy it. There, straight-forward as well as done. My fiance wants to get enough assets that what they bring in per month pays for the pool, then so it is a lot more rental property buying before the pool, both of us both have agreed to split the cost. So our fiance is doing it his way, I am doing it our way. He has a sign on the fridge that states a pool goal. His two rentals don’t quite bring enough per month to do his half. So he is on the hunt for more real estate; For me, I put money away in an account every month as well as watch the number grow. I guess our way is more effective. My fiance states that I will then be out the money as well as only have a pool to show for it. For him, he will then have a bunch of rental properties that still make money as well as are worth money if he ever sells. I see his point. I think I will have our half of the pool faster though. I don’t entirely care for rental property either. I just want a swimming pool after all.
