in
Moore, Byron 2016.jpg

Question: My wife and I are planning to build a house soon. It will be a luxury home and fortunately we can afford it. We are at odds over what kind of mortgage to get. She wants a shorter mortgage because she doesn’t like being in debt. I lean towards a longer mortgage to hang on to my money longer. Who’s right?
Answer: Economically, you are. Emotionally, she is.
Well, I’m glad I could clear things up for you so easily ...
