I need some advice about using the equity in my house to invest for retirement. My broker advised that I could take out a morgage on my home, (using an interest only loan) and use that money to beef up my retirment portfolio. The plan was to divert my TSA into paying for the interest on the morgage and after 5 years direct the investment to make monthy payments on the loan principal.

does this make sense to anyone? can this work? what are the risks?
