Hi Dave,

You'd need to stretch your horizon to at least 10-12 years. If you guys are in your early 30's, why the 2 year cut-and-run timeframe on growth accounts?

Alright, point to you, I suppose my condo free deadline doesn't actually relate to my investment strategy.

So if I'm understanding your recommendation, we would convert the 2nd mortgage to an unsecured personal loan, which would allow us to sell the condo and look for another place to live. If we were to buy again, you would further recommend minimizing our down-payment, and then continue to invest. Is that right?

So where does one get the guaranteed 6-8% after tax return you mentioned?
