Thanks for the honest feedback everyone! I wasn't sure what to expect! I'm probably small fish in this market... Lol

I forgot to mention the housing, for clarity, we own a home. Bought 3yrs ago. 1400 mtg. Probably have somewhere around 60-80k in equity as of today. We don't plan on paying it off anytime soon.

We haven't come into a pile of money to be able to pay cash, which would obviously be preferred. We are typical working folk however our goal is to keep the monthly obligations under 1 persons monthly take home salary, so figure 4250.

I'm feeling pretty good about it, but may wait a few more months to be able to put more down. I'd like to be in the 50% range.

Thanks for all the input, it's alway good to learn how others do it/see it!
