    we put an offer and it got accepted

    the mortgage initially will be 890K
    and after selling our current house will be roughly 490 k (roughly =annual gross for family )

    question: 30 year 4.625
    10/6: 3.875

    which one should I choose? I am leaning towards 10/6

    please advise . Thanks

    curious as I just locked a 10/6 for 4.125
    Keybank , haven’t closed yet, It should be valid
    I Believe rates are changing every week too .

    Probably you are right

    too late for us ,we have moved ahead .
    We thought the same in 2020 and here we are 😩
    we plan to stay here long term and also hope to put old house in market by June/early July. If we wait , that price will drop too

    thanks though .

    Probably the 'easiest' envelope calculation:

    the movement would be cash out and then pay down the primary mortgage saving x% of the mortgage = y dollars savings -- say the $400k * x% = y dollars

    Then calculate the cash flow of property - would that be equal to y dollars. That's the simple math

    The complex math would include the timing of the cashout of the original property - but that will also need to take into consideration of property values, inflation, depreciation, recapture, etc. All with rather large unknowns

    compare that with potential investment that would happen with the future earnings with same unknowns; equities market, inflation, long term gains taxation.

    Start with the easiest question: do you mind being a landlord.

    Often you need to consider this a separate business decision. You do have the sale of personal residence tax benefit, but that is the stop.

    Would you buy this house as a rental property or something else? It is a stand alone decision. How much would you pay and a new mortgage does it cash flow and pay for itself? Your property taxes, insurance costs, and maintenance will be different. Don’t anchor in what you originally paid for it.

    In addition to it being a sellers market I would also consider the primary residence tax exemption in your rent vs sell calculations.

    We have three properties handled by company and they take 6% to do all the front end stuff. While yes this is a hot market; look at your property's overall rise over three years and rents collectible to determine value of that vs plowing it into your new mortgage.

    Even during 2007 downturn, the Bay area recovered the fastest and never looked back. it may flatten and even regress a little, but it still will climb IMHO.
    Definitely something to think about . I will try to find out how exactly much rent I can get to calculate . These 2 houses are only one mile apart and the current house is also newer less than 20 years old . So managing wouldn’t be difficult. That’s what my wife wants to do as well . Will see. Thanks

    Really up to you. Small numbers mortgage if selling the other property and paying down mortgage. That makes me think you're more debt adverse in general.

    That may play into the thought that you may pay down further ahead of schedule, which run contrary to the 30yr. Is there a reason no 15 yr fixed quoted since looking at the arm?

    ​​​​​I would consider that if this is truly a 20yr forever home consideration horizon.

    ​​​​​​And just making sure....your current property not an opportunity to lease out for portfolio diversity beyond equities?

    Thank you . All these have crossed our minds

    1: our current place would be easily rented . Not exactly sure how much but probably would net between 2500-3000. Tax and insurance probably 400/ month .
    Equity I believe is 400K after closing realtor etc .

    the market is hot , so selling would be easy . If I rent , the fear is prices dropping or not finding a renter in future if recession hits. I would still be able to pay the mortgage without selling the current house , but not save much for retirement.

    2 .can’t afford 15 year without compromising on retirement savings , as two kids in private

    Still thinking , but thank you for the advice .

    Yes, I would like to pay it off before I retire .

    What happens if you take the 10/6 and just pay the mortgage as if it were the 30 year fix at the the higher rate?

    Fixed after 10 years:
    Interest: $374,728.52
    Principal: $174,372.28
    Payments: $549,100.80

    ARM after 10 years:
    Interest: $310,413.51
    Principal: $191,799.69
    Payments: $502,213.20

    If rates averaged 6% from years 10-30 the loans would be similar. I would take the ARM as it's unlikely you would carry that loan the full 30 years. You will likely have moved or refi by then.
    Thank you for the link
