Financial decisions should be based on trade-off analysis. Should we invest in a rental property or an investment account, should we take Social Security sooner or later, should we gift assets to a Charitable Remainder Trust or pay the taxes on a highly appreciated asset?
It’s possible to assign numbers to these scenarios. Yet despite all the quantifiable data often times decisions come down to emotions like comfort, security, fear, envy, etc. Do you feel good about the financial decision you made? Can you commit to it?
It’s important to balance the “numbers” with emotion.
