Im new to Fooldom, and asked this question at Fools and their money Board, and did not receive a response. was it the wrong Board?
Anyway, Iwant to refinance my mortgage, and at 1st,before I found TMF, I was going to get a 15 year loan to replace a 8.75% note, with 25 years remaining.
I have no plans to sell with in 5 years.
After reading TMF Investment guide, 13 steps, and
You have more than you think, I want to invest in stocks more than ever.My question is what to do with my CC, and car dept. If I get a 30 year mortgage and add the dept (11k cc, 9k car) into the loan, I would "free up" about $700/m, with loan of 142k and payments of approx $1200. I could prepay $200/m and have $500 remaining to invest, IS THIS FOOLISH ?

Thanks for any help

hoping to be a Foolplayer
