#11 - Home Ownership

All about real estate - and by real estate, I mean home ownership! There will likely be an episode about rental properties some other time.

We de-bunk some of your "truths" about owning a home. Why we do it, what's a thought and what's a myth? Why do YOU want to own a home? Or not own a home?

I’d love to get some feedback as to why you bought your home or why you decided to rent! Feel free to start the convo with me on twitter @morgenrochard or @money_owners

#5 - Q&A Session

So with that Mark take it away.

That’s not really what it means. Merriam Webster certainly has that as listed in the definition, but we’re going to use another definition today: “to train or develop by instruction and exercise especially in self-control”. I’ll repeat that for you: “to train or develop by instruction and exercise especially in self-control”.
