Hi Tidegirl,I'm on vacation with limited online time, but I could have sworn we dove into your scenario here about 3-4 weeks ago, no?Bottom line (apologies for the short answer);Assuming you are responsible savers, versus habitual consumers (which your existing profile would suggest the former is true,) then;FINANCIALLY you'll be far better off putting as little cash into the down payment/equity on your new home as you can (pending qualification & offer from the best loan options.)Your long-term financial growth, and immediate and longterm financial security, will be best served by maximizing your liquid safe growth accounts, which will outperform the after-tax costs of your purchase financing.Luck,Dave DonhoffLeverage Planner
