The Darwinian Doctor
In this post from Fincon 2022 in Orlando, I collected some advice from three fellow physician content creators. The advice was targeted towards young medical trainees or healthcare professionals. The topics ranged from advice about moonlighting to investment and relationship advice. My favorite pearl of wisdom was from the Physician on Fire, who told me: “It doesn’t matter how much you spend on a ring, it matters who you give it to.” Sage advice indeed.

The Prudent Plastic Surgeon
In this great analysis, Jordan Frey compares 30 year versus 15 year mortgages. He uses an example from his own portfolio to illustrate the effect on the cash flow between the two options. Unsurprisingly, the 15 year mortgage decreases the monthly cash flow from the property. The advantage, of course, is that after 15 years, the property will be paid off, at which point the cash flow will sky rocket.
I use 30 year mortgages for most of my properties to ensure that the properties will pay for their own debt service. Keep in mind that you can always accelerate payment of the mortgages if you desire.
