I am trying to decide what is the best way to go. I know there are a lot of financially smart people on this forum and was hoping to get some advice.
You will get some advice, guaranteed. And it will be all over the place. Since I'm first, I say go with the mortgage. Make sure it's an amount you can pay off whenever you want to, but arbing these low rates into the (in my SWAG) high rate future will be a winning proposition. So one on the mortgage side.
