Today we answer several of your mortgage questions including if you should put all the money you can toward your down payment or use some of it to pay off student loans and what kind of mortgage you should get. We discuss a unique situation around a universal life policy and once again answer that for the vast majority of docs no annuity in any of its sneaky forms is a worthy purchase, and finally answer a question about if paying off your student loans slowly actually improves your credit score. We also have a short interview with Jim Sheils over at SI Homes.
