Online Finance Magazines

Most people intentionally bypass the bay of finance magazines in the grocer or their local newsstand, believing that there is nothing in those magazines that will help them gain a better understanding of their money, the state of the economy, or anything else relating to finances for that matter. But by exploring what online finance magazines have to offer, you may actually be able to gain a much better understanding of the world’s economy and how it influences you, and you may have an improved sense of understanding over your own finances as well.

– Not only will reading online finance magazines give you input from a variety of different sources on the current state of the financial segment, the world economy and other vital finance topics, but by getting such a wide variety of different views, you will get a much larger picture of the current situation than by just following one point of view. Online finance magazines give you plenty of insight by sharing views with you from sources all over the world, including finance experts, economists, government officials, politicians and more.

– By reading online finance magazines you will open yourself up to advice on a wide variety of different finance topics. You may not go looking for the next big investment vehicle, or advice on how to invest small but reap big rewards, but articles like these and more are available in many online finance magazines, so there is plenty that you can learn by reading them. Not only will you learn about the economy in the United States and all over the world, but you will also learn a lot about managing your own finances, getting out of debt, financing a big purchase like a home or car, or just managing small investments or your growing investment portfolio.

– Online finance magazines often have question and answer sections that you can write in to. Getting your question published in a print magazine is a lot harder than getting published on the web. Ask an insightful question about finances or the world economy and have your question and its corresponding answer broadcast online for the entire world to see. It may surprise you how many people you can help by asking a question that is on the minds of many other people.

If you want to keep up to date on what is going on in finance not only in your area, but across the country and around the world, reading online finance magazines can really help. If you want advice on investing, growing your investment portfolio, managing your money, financing a large purchase or paring down your debt, you can find the answers that you seek in online finance magazines as well. If you have concerns relating to the economy or your own finance management on a large or small scale, online finance magazines can really make a difference.

Is Leasing an Auto a Good Option Right Now?

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Should you lease a car?

With the current state of the economy and rising interest rates, many are considering leasing an auto instead of making an outright purchase or financing one. While there are a few benefits that can come through a leased vehicle, this is a decision that will require some careful thought and weighing of the pros and cons before leaping. This is particularly true if you have never leased a vehicle before. Let’s take a look at whether or not leasing is a good option right now.

First and foremost, the most important thing to consider about a lease is the fact that you will have a buyout price at the end of the lease period. Many people forget about this extra fee and at the end of a few years find out that they really aren’t in any position to purchase their car. Unless you have more than enough money saved up to pay that extra fee at the end of a lease term, this may not be a wise option.

Another common problem facing those that lease is the fact that once the lease is complete, you won’t have a vehicle to trade in unless you do decide to purchase the leased vehicle. While leasing is convenient, it is often very difficult to get another car, especially if your funds are limited. Unless you plan on leasing for many years to come, this is something that must be considered. Essentially you’ll be paying for two to three years on a car, but at the end of the term, you’ll have little to show for your efforts.

While the interest rates for leases are usually a bit lower, there are some extra fees that may be included that can reduce any potential savings dramatically. It is vital to read through a lease document completely before you sign it to ensure you understand how much you will be paying now, during the term of the lease and when it is over. You may be told that your lease payment will be a certain amount when you are shopping for the car, but in actuality, you’ll have to add in other fees on top of that initial quote and your payment can be affected. Dealers that are above board usually do not tack on extra fees, but it does pay to be cautious.

We’ve gone over quite a few negatives about the leasing process, but there are a few positives to consider as well. First and foremost, the monthly payments are usually quite a bit lower. Considering the state of the interest rate market at this time, this is usually a very attractive selling point for many car buyers. The warranties are usually a bit better on leased vehicles and you may even be able to take advantage of some tax benefits if you do decide to go this route. Leasing is not for everyone, but with careful management and a complete understanding of the terms, they may also be very beneficial.
