    Joe, are we allowed to purchase property with loaned money if all the interest and cost are covered with the income of the rental?

    AND, I’ll get right on that investments that requires $2 Million for each deposit! Not even in my wildest dreams! IF I had that much money, NS would not worry about raising funds for the children’s and teen’s buildings!

    Thanks again for your passion! Jane

    I think that is supposed to be $2,000 not $2,000,000.

    Don’t forget e-loan who is giving 5.25% with initial deposit of $5,000 (this is not the minimum balance but you must start the account with this amount).

    Most people think HSBC is only going to let that 6% go for only a few months. Then it will revert back to 5.05%

    Thanks for keeping things on the cutting edge Joe, YOU ROCK!!

    So if you put 60,000 into savings at HSBC would you make 3,000 a month?

    No, i don’t think it’s monthly rate. It should be annual rate. You would get 3,000 a YEAR if you put 60,000 into savings at HSBC provided that the rate is 5% every year.
