I am 29 years old, and have $100,000 in my 401(k)
plan due to some profitable internet stock picks a
few years back.

I would like to withdraw some for first time purchase
of a home. Is this advisable? I would like to take
as much as $30,000 for 20% down on a place that
sells for $145,000.

Given my young age, I consider $100,000 to be a
great sum for retirement investments. I have the
rest of my life to earn and contribute to that 401(k),
and better to pay on a mortgage than rent.

Perhaps $30,000 is too great of a withdrawal -

What do you think of this idea in general for a young
person.

thanks,
PaulieG
