My spouse and I make 330k. We have been saving via investment to buy a home. The area that we want to buy has homes ranging from 1.2-2 million. I am scared to take a mortgage for something that high.
Current rent: 4k
Mortgage for 1.2 million: 5.8k after putting 33% down.
Is this too much? We would have to sell some of the stocks for the down payment, so we'd have to pay long term capital gains. Should we keep renting?
