I'm about to take out a loan, but I have no credit. I need to get a loan for 1,500, and everywhere I've looked online about how to do this hasn't really been that descriptive, or helpful. What's a good place to get a loan in Washington? What are some tips on how not to get ripped off? How long does it take to get the money if I am able to get the loan? I'm not being lazy and just expecting all you dudes to answer these questions for me, i'm searching all this stuff right now, I would just like as much help as I can get. Much appreciated!

You never buy in a bear market, unless you have irrefutable proof that the underlying fundamentals support current price levels.

Looking at the fundamentals, gold should be worth realistically about $700 an ounce right now.

I've got a neck and bridge salvaged from my old electric bass. I want to try my hand at creating some sort of acoustic bass. Do you guys have any ideas or suggestions for simple and cheap things I could use for the body? I have access to some simple tools and could probably borrow some power tools if need be, but I'm not too bothered about how clean it looks, to be honest the more rough the better; I would be happy with it looking a bit like something I'd casually thrown together.

I've done a garbage bass
with a bucket and a 5th bass string on a stick.
shit is so cash you can crank the stick as well as pressure it along the length for sound and you could totally feel the bucket resonance
I suggest you try a tube-like or doumbek-like structure for the bass.
If you can find or manifacture domething like a shallow darbouka maybe it will make good resonance for the metal strings.
just make sure to make it ghetto

My parents died recently. My father was a landowner apparently, and after my brother and I sell everything I should have a little more than 200k to myself. I plan on buying a small home, because it's cheaper than renting in the long run. Or so I've heard.

What should I know about this? How do I buy a house, and how do I keep it from falling apart? I don't want anything fancy, just something I can live in. Maybe I'd use the left over money to support myself, and get a part time job or something.

Sell some of it, enough to make say $50-$80k. Use that money to build a small house on the land that you still own. Something like a 500-700sq/ft. cabin with solar panels. Generate your own power, grow some food, and live a simple life void of mortgage payments, rent, and high bills.

you should point out that the rates of poverty are largely because foreigners (mexicans) hop the border and do shit work for shit pay. There's actually a lot of jobs out there in Texas for skilled laborers or educated peeps that pay decent. idk what you mean by "dead", but Dallas has a huge crime rate in certain areas? Overall we're not very poor though, actually p prosperous, comparatively.

I agree with the TexMex, shit is the greatest lol

Home ownership is like owning a boat, there is always something to fix. Definitely get a job, if you are not hurting for cash you can get one you enjoy. Don't get hurt without health insurance, it can wreck you financially as well, even if you are sitting on piles of cash. Job will help with credit rating, with which you can get a low interest mortgage. Owning a property is better, because it is like you are paying yourself rent, and all that money goes into paying off the value of your mort. Also, the interest you pay on the mort is tax deductible. It is almost like getting a free loan. Dont forget to pay off any consumer debt & make all payments on time to build your credit. You could set up a trust if you investigate it , not here obviously.
House maintenance is not rocket science. Just about every problem you can encounter someone else has had before you. That means you can youtube just about any home project, ask at hardware stores, or contract out if you dont think you can do it. The best legal peer to peer file sharing is still the library. They have tons on diy, first time home ownership, buying a home, financing a home. Read up before you get any advice from someone you may be paying(Realtor, contractor, handyman). There are a lot of dishonest people who will take unfair advantage of your ignorance. There is no excuse for lazyness.

Oh,oh, take care of any water damage immediately, the longer you wait the more expensive it gets. & keep wild birds out, the mites they carry can cause real problems.

Without details it's general info. that is my 2 cents. Hopefully probate court did not eat your inheritance. Good luck

homeowner here, 1 acre with a nearly 100 year old log cabin. i only regret that the house is too big for me being the only one living there, and since i'm still technically within city limits and not a couple miles further out where i'd still be considered rural, i have to maintain my property to city code which means dealing with weeds and grass often and regularly (the previous owner ruined the lawn, i didn't want to buy grass seed so i let the grass grow long to let it go to seed while i was traveling and came home to a citation from the city about my grass being too long). yes, there's always something that needs maintaining or fixing but the peace of mind of having your own private space is pretty awesome. i dont know where you live though, but $200,000 is definitely not enough money to support you for very long, especially if you own property. you have to pay yearly taxes dont forget, plus the cost of living expenses and then other shit happening which you may not remember to factor in.

What up /howto/. So I have a job, checking and savings account and all that. But what else can I do to assist in the cash flow? Stocks? Funds? I'm pretty illiterate on the finer points of these aspects of economics, so I don't even know what books I can or whatever to start making heads or tails of any of this.

In short, what makes (steady, regardless of amount) money if you want to sit on it for a while? Not looking for a get rich quick scheme, nor do I expect to have millions in a meager few years.

Pretty much this. Bank interest rates are a joke, but if you play with stocks or e-currencies, you risk losing money.

Some treasury bonds have better interest rates, if you're willing to give up money now and get more money in the distant future.

I had a medium yield brokerage account with Chase for about 6 years, if I ever lost money it wasn't even $1,000. Though I did invest $15k initially and put more and more over time. In the end before I liquidated it all I had made $25k profit, with a total of $63k.

There is always an element of risk, you should invest it in supermarkets or stores you frequent. that way whenever you go into the store you can asess how your stocks are doing by how up-kept the store is and if it is unkempt then you can press your concearns at a shareholder conference "i went into blah store and it looks run down, this makes me uncertain of my investment" etc.

Plan for your future, little by little. Get a book on Personal Financial Management.

1.Pay off consumer debt, make all monthly payments on time, keep a budget spreadsheet (find out how that is done).
2.Build a 3-6month emergency fund and keep it in interest bearing account.
3.401K, IRA, you can get those in tax deferred or pay the tax upfront. anything your work has which may include matching funds. Many places will match the first few % you contribute if you join their retirement program. That = free money! Work on maximizing you contribution to what is legal. (if you go over than look at step 6)
4.Own rather than rent your domicile. Mort interest is tax ded & the money you would put in rent goes into home equity.
5. Check your credit score each year with the big 3 credit agencies, they make a lot of mistakes on their info, plus you may see id theft before it gets out of hand.
6. Once you have these down you can look into investing. Your 401K &/or IRA use some of these techniques. But if you have maximized it is now time for you to invest in another way.

Investing requires more analysis. If you are young you can risk more, if you are old you may be looking to live off the earnings, withdrawing your investments. In which case you don't want to have risky investments. Higher risk means potential for greater gains but losses as well. If you are young you can take those. If you have retired you may not want to risk as much but still want to keep growth up above inflation. a more conservative approach is needed.

If you want a jumping off point, wiki the Rule of 72. It helps put things in perspective.

Personally I put this before #1; contribute to a charitable cause you deem as worthy. Karma has a strange way of working. You gotta water the root if you want to eat the fruit!
