My partner and I have put down a deposit on a mortgage for our first house. We are going to split the mortgage in half so we have the same amount each.
I've got a stock portfolio around 30k that I can sell some or all of. (I have 10k in cash also)
I'm wondering if I should keep some of the shares and have a bigger deposit, or to pay down and focus everything on getting the debt down asap.
How has everyone else managed to build a stock portfolio whist paying down the mortgage? Or have you gone down the pay down all debt fast route? Revolving credit perhaps?
I really enjoy researching and investing in stocks and have done well financially thus far, earning a return well in excess of the mortgage rate.
