maybe someone can lend some advice.
Background: I'm 28, married, and expecting my first child.
Our short(ish)-term financial goal is to continue saving for a home.
I'm wondering if I should take some portion of the cash we've saved and purchase stocks, or possibly treasury bonds?
.. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to money.
I'll be the only one working after the baby (assuming I continue in my present high(ish) paying job [not quite six figures]). We live in an a relatively expensive part of California, so an "entry-level" home for us will probably cost around $300,000.
Finally, our only consumer debts are ~$6,000 remaining on my car.
It really sounds like my best bet for now is to save for a home, and then worry about investing after that. (I'm also contributing to a Roth 401(k), with about %40 invested in precious metals).
