Episode 46: Thinking like a Retiree in your 40’s & 50’s - Part 1
This show begins a 3-part Series where the guys will go into detail on how to habitually prepare for retirement in your 40’s and 50’s, so that you can retire sooner with confidence. The episode starts with Mike and Matt quickly warming up with a discussion about the asset inflation taking place in the U.S. Real Estate Market – in January the Year-over-Year National average price increase for Real Estate was 11.2%, and this was a 15 year high. Additionally, they discussed how the lack of Affordable homes will affect everyone, but truly is affecting the First Time home buyer the most and those that are renting who don’t have the means for a down payment. As they come back from the break, the guys lay out the major “hurdles” and focal points those in their mid-40’s to late 50’s as retirement nears closer and closer, such as: Debt consolidation; optimizing your 401(k) distributions; calculate your net worth; and, have good discussions with those that are Retirees.
