VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Would be nice to read this article, but with the stupid advertising covering all of the cities names it is totally wasted.
wouldn't buy a thing from an ad like this and definitely wouldn't trust my money there.
I read this exact article 6 months or a year ago?? Either you're recycling or someone is plagiarizing?
Soon you will be getting a lot of people bashing the Southern cities if its anything like the last time published.. New material please!
The author must be on crack, some of those places suck and their math doesn't add up either such as the $1000 per month median avg. mort. or the $600 for rent plus gas, electric, cable, phone, internet, food, maintenance costs, TAXES and HEALTH CARE cost, (travel expense auto or public). Can we say another educator without brains.
I couldn't get past this paragraph on the first slide, I'm single and apparently SOL:
Producing a retirement income of $40,000 is a realistic goal for many retired couples, even those without a traditional pension. The average monthly Social Security benefit for a retired worker was about $1,230 at the beginning of 2012. For a married couple each receiving the average amount, that's a retirement income of just under $30,000 per year. Add to that a modest nest egg of $250,000, and that could bring your retirement income to around $40,000 per year, depending on how the money is invested, your draw-down strategy and the inflation rate
Have to agree that the author of this article does not live in the real world, nor do they have any idea of what the actual income level of most people really is. The only advice I can give is to those young enough to have a full life time to earn and save for your retirement, it can never be soon enough to start, the earlier the better, and no one is going to do it for you, especially the government. If you are lucky enough to have that proverbial gold spoon stuck up your rear end, that might allow you more time to act irresponsibly while you are younger, but you are not doing yourself any favors. If you want to be an adult, you should certainly act like one and modify your behavior so you are able to be responsible for yourself.
There are few cities in the country that have all of the medical facilities that san Antonio does, not to mention theaters, art galleries and many other sources of entertainment.
BUT...if you're looking to buy a residence, do not buy in the city. The property taxes are brutal. Buy out in the county somewhere. Western Bexar County is nice, and the south side of the county is as well.
In all these places, you’ve got a greater chance of living longer, i.e., ending up in a nursing home and spending your entire life savings in the last six months of your life.
I think I’ll stay in New York, where I’ve got a greater chance of avoiding all that by getting run over by a bus.
