My partner plus I are opposites when it comes to finances, and my partner is all about acquiring assets, and he mainly just wants to get rental properties.
He has a single family lake house plus a duplex that he rents out, i prefer to save cash plus I will occasionally put some in the stock market, then the numerous of us both want a pool though.
I suggested that all of us save up the cash plus buy it. There, easy plus done. My partner wants to get enough assets that what they bring in per month pays for the pool, and so it is a lot more rental property buying before the pool; All of us both have agreed to cut the cost. So my partner is doing it his way, I am doing it my way. He has a sign on the fridge that states a pool goal. His numerous 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 cash away in an account every month plus watch the number grow. I guess my way is more effective. My partner states that I will then be out the cash plus only have a pool to show for it. For him, he will then have a bunch of rental properties that still make cash plus are worth cash if he ever sells. I see his point. I suppose I will have my half of the pool faster though. I don’t easily care for rental property either. I just want a swimming pool after all.
