Rebalancing your taxable savings & stocks (after setting aside sufficient safety reserves) into your real estate equity would probably be a decent move at present... so roll your 10% down plus non-seller-paid closing costs out of that account into the real estate account.$65k is 10% down....$19,500 is 3% assumed closing costs & prepaids.=======$84,500 gets you the key on $650,000 home.Hi Dave,What you laid out is exactly what I would like to do, I was just told 10% down financing wasn't available. Sounds like I need to reassess my mortgage broker...Our credit is excellent, how much difference is there with a 7/1 or 10/1 ARM? Do you think 5 is the sweet spot right now?
