One option is to split the difference. Get a smaller mortgage, maybe 20%-50% loan-to-value. This hedges your risk but also reduces your potential gains. Um, no.Your risk is the same with any mortgage greater than $0, be it 20% LTV or 80%. I've seen houses go into forclosure with a balance as low as $5000.Financially, the Best Answer is to borrow as cheap as you can for as long a period as you can. *IF* you can earn more than the loan costs. You just have to make sure that you are liquid enough that you can always make the monthly payment.Not that I am recommending either of these, but PFF pays 5.95% and PGX pays 6.4%.
