Hi Remleduff,
Boy, I wish I would have had your foresight at 25! While I don't have any specific "advice" I did want to congratulate you on starting early and looking toward the future.
6% company match is generous these days-great to take advantage of;
I hope your 7K is at least in a Vanguard or similar MM account and not earning a paltry .25% at a bank. Perhaps even an ULTRA short Bond fund would bring some earnings;
Just make sure your Funds don't have too much overlap in both content and style.
And oh, that house. Does that come with spouse and kids later on? Maybe you'll need to do some re-figuring when that happens!
Best of luck and again, congratulations on your open eyes!
