#54: Paying for College – Should You Save For Your Kids?
Join in on the Retire Inspired Podcast as Chris talks about how much parents should pay for their kids’ college. He gives listeners seven tips to help them navigate this confusing and overwhelming topic.   Talk to your kids about their life plans and how college may or may not be a part of the equation. Start early. Start saving when your kids are young. Waiting until their junior or senior year of high school will not give you adequate time to save. If you’re late to the game, don’t give up! Have your kids research scholarships and grants and apply for every money source they can (except loans). This researching and applying should be your kids’ part-time job in their high school years. Check out the options for paying for college. A community college is an excellent option to knock out the basics. Know the real deal about getting a degree from an expensive college. Consider the options with your kids: they could work part time; work full time and go to school at night; work full time to save up cash to go to school full time; join the armed forces and utilize their tuition assistance program. Be creative with additional expenses. Find ways to save on books, living expenses, meal plans, etc. In addition to his discussion about paying for college, Hogan talks about an alarming article on student loan debt among Americans who are 50 and older. He also talks with callers about a variety of topics: asset allocations and investing; how to prepare for a new baby; paying off your mortgage early; long-term care insurance; and helping parents prepare for retirement.

#52: How To Pay Off Your House Early
In this episode of the Retire Inspired podcast, Chris Hogan cues up the subject of paying off your mortgage early. That’s right! Rather than having that monthly payment hanging around your neck, you can take charge of your finances and pay off that mortgage so you can throw more money toward your retirement dream.   Here are some ways you can pay off your mortgage early:   Make an extra house payment every quarter. Bring your lunch to work every day. Refinance to a 15-year fixed rate mortgage. Downsize to a smaller home. Don’t bite off more than you can chew. Work with a pro to find the right home within your budget. Maximize your down payment.   If you don’t think you can take on this challenge of paying off your home early, think again! Hogan talks to folks who paid off their mortgage early—and they share how they made it possible.   For more information on paying off your home early, check out Hogan’s article: chrishogan360.com/how-to-pay-off-the-mortgage-early    Are you ready to buy a home?  Talk to the loan experts: https://goo.gl/mkCvJx   Call us with your questions about money!
