February 28, 2012 • Page 4 shop online at www.missourivalleyshopper.com DAVE SAYS: Get Your Priorities Straight First Dear Dave, My husband’s company recently told everyone that massive layoffs are coming, and they should start looking for other jobs. Right now, all of his options are out-of-town. A real estate agent told us we’d have to remodel our kitchen in order to sell the house. We’ve got $3,500, but remodeling would take about $2,000. Should we get a second mortgage to get the work done? Pamela Dear Pamela, You might want to get another opinion. Sure, a new kitchen would be •Vehicles • Farm Machinery • Scrap • WANTED Iron Old PAYING TOP DOLLAR Call 402- 841-1060 For Price nice, but is that the endall, be-all? Either way, there’s no way I’d go into debt to make this happen. Your house isn’t even on the market yet. There’s no reason to ?x up a house that’s not for sale, especially when you only have $3,500 to your name! There is, for sure, a ?nancial storm brewing on your horizon. Start right now living on rice and beans and saving up piles of cash to build a bigger umbrella. Wait until he actually lands another job before you make any big decisions. What if something pops up where you are? If you end up moving, then you might take $2,000 from savings to ?x up the kitchen and get the house sold. Don’t do it unless you’re going to pay cash, though! You don’t want a second mortgage hanging over your heads, making everything even more dif?cult. —Dave Leave The 401(k) Alone! Dear Dave, My husband has been transferred again in his job. Right now, we have three houses and about $60,000 in other debts. He just found out that he can borrow against his 401(k) without hardship at the beginning of the year. Is this a good idea? Yvonne Dear Yvonne, Three houses? Do you buy a new house every time you move? You guys need to stop doing that. The “other debt” isn’t the problem. It’s those houses that are killing you! I would never recommend that someone borrow against their 401(k) just to pay bills. It might be a different story if you were facing foreclosure or about to ?le bankruptcy, but that doesn’t sound like the case here. I think you’ve just made some really bad decisions, and these decisions are following you around and messing up everything else. Most of the time in situations like this I have to say: “Sell the car!” In your case, it’s: “Sell the Dave RAMSEY houses!” I know the market isn’t great in some areas, but these things are eating you guys alive. You’ve got to put some effort into getting rid of them. Then, start living on a really tight budget and clean up the other debt! —Dave * For more ?nancial help, please visit daveramsey.com.
