I am a little concerned about your plan to use your stocks as a backup to pay the full debt. Even though the economy is humming along and jobs are plentiful, you have to consider a layoff or drop in the stock market. A drop in the stock market like October 1987 could mess up your plans. Nothing is guaranteed.
