..may not stay in the house beyond 4-5 more years,.....I'm not missing anything...

Variable rate loans if you will really be staying there a short time.

I refianance last year with PenFeds no closing cost 5/5 ARM that is now at 2.75% and it will be locked for five years.

You might also consider if there is any chance that you might want to keep the house as a rental when you move. If so the longer loans might give you good positive cash flow.
