Wife and I are divorcing and she’s buying out my equity in our current home. This should leave me with approx 170k. I’m really not sure what size/cost home I’m looking for, but likely > 350k. So the usual recommendation of 20% down would be 70k. Wanted to know thoughts on putting down more/less/all of the 170k available. If the not all, what would you do with the remaining? My finances are pretty good as far as 401k, HSA, IRA, emergency savings, etc. Only debt is 20k remaining on auto loan with low rate. With mortgage rates higher I expect that should probably be a priority, but I’m definitely no expert.
