Episode 25: House Beautiful Or Money Pit?

Whether you’re obsessed with HGTV (I am) or devour the real estate listings as they were People Magazine (I do), you know that your house is not just where you lay your head — it’s a pricey line item on your budget. Particularly when things need fixing. That’s why I invited Angie Hicks, founder of Angie’s List, to drop by. She fills us in on how not to get ripped off on home repairs, as well as how she grew her firm from a company of two into a juggernaut with 1,800 employees and 10 million verified reviews. Plus, Kelly and I answer your financial questions: Should a couple get married in retirement for financial reasons and should you invest in your traditional or Roth 401(k) at work? And in this week’s Thrive segment, PwC real estate maven Mitch Roschelle joins me to talk about buying — and selling — smart. Then, get ready for next week’s special episode that we recorded LIVE from the stage at FinCon. And, as always, please share with your friends and let us know what you think in the reviews.
