“A dollar saved is a dollar earned,” wrote Benjamin Franklin. On the surface, Franklin’s famous adage offers simple advice: frugality is a form of financial investment.

But go just a little deeper, and the saying encourages us to discern between good discounts and misleading ones. Whatever the venture, an investor owes it to him or herself to take all risks into honest consideration before putting any money on the table.

homes in San Antonio

According to 2016 census data, San Antonio is the 7th largest city in the United States in terms of population. San Antonio has many of the characteristics that people love about big cities: diverse cuisine, interesting businesses, culture, and fun activities to do and places to explore.

An exciting question has flooded much of the local tech and business news in Austin lately: Will Amazon set up its second headquarters – Amazon HQ2 – in Austin, Texas?

According to trusted data-driven sources like Moody’s Analytics, which predicts Austin as the most likely place for Amazon’s new location, Austinites have room for confidence.

As you’d expect, cities across North America threw their hands in the air, volunteering diverse metro-areas with hopes of seizing Jeff Bezos’ attention. Amazon

But lately, this eons-old trend has diminished substantially. According to data released by Rent Cafe, the trend for high-income households to rent is on the rise.

The number of high-income households who choose to rent has increased by a whopping 217% from 2005 to 2015 across the United
