This is relevant to us, even in Boston, although you’re unlikely to find a home for $100,000, of course.

Dear Dr. Don:

I have saved $20,000 for a down payment on a home, and I also have a mutual fund of about $100,000, which I have been saving for retirement (I’m 48). I can find a home suitable for me for about $80,000. I am tempted to just pay cash and avoid 30 years of paying interest, but would then lose a lot of the interest from the mutual fund. I’m a good saver and would build another retirement fund. Do you think it’s a good move to pay cash for a house?

Answer: Invest or pay cash for house? Dr. Don, Bankrate.com
