Thanks for the bit of relevant info to the thread in between the lecture. We're doing great financially, just may end up w 10-15% down instead of 20. Again happiness is key, so if we only have 15% down on the house we love vs 20 on a house that's eh we'll go with the former and never look back.

IMO it's a no brainer as well. We're in the same bucket, high income, low down payment and the home prices aren't exactly cheap. With the tax bracket we're in, it makes sense to put 10% down, stay liquid w the other 5-10 and take a larger tax deduction on the interest. PMI is an absolute waste.
