    Hi Clayton, something I haven't seen or heard you address with this 401k loan strategy… have you thought about the tax implications of using a 401k loan in the following manner? The money paid back (both P&I) to pay off the loan is used with after tax dollars, and then it's taxed again upon withdrawal. So the way I see it if you recycle those funds by taking 401k loans year after year the 401k account balance becomes essentially "funded" with entirely after tax dollars only to be taxed again upon retirement withdrawal. For example, a 30% tax bracket hit, then another 30% hit making an effective tax rate of basically 50% on every dollar in the account. (1 x 0.7 x 0.7 = 0.49). Is your thought that this "tax loss" if offset by the "tax win" associated with REI? Im finding it hard to justify a 50% effective tax rate for quick liquidity. Thanks in advance.

    So, I found a great house and want to use $20k from my 401k for a down payment , in a very strong market (south Florida) for MY house , not an investment, is this good or foolish?
