If I were you, I think I would feel better about having the money in the bank while I was looking for employment.

Oops- I just reread you post. I guess you will have some extra money from the house to see you through until your next job even if you paid off the mortgage.

However, I still vote for taking a mortgage, if you think your investments will do better than your mortgage rate. Just my two cents.
