right, thats another thing i'm working on; trying to look at investments as a whole and look at the big picture.
i'm a little bit in a rush to acquire property with the mindset that property and interest rates are going to rise.
i guess i sort of built up the mindset that property will provide a short term return (instant income over mortgage) and appreciation of the property its self (equity through appreciation).
i would still be planning on continuing with the 457b and possibly contributing even more since i used some of it.
i'm just not sure. if i'm going to pay ridiculous taxes on it, and pay taxes on the $10k in the bracket i'm in, its not going to be worth it... its almost like trading $5k to get a hold on $10k. obviously not worth it.
