hopefully, my house will be done in 15.

I'm leaning more towards this scenario. my kids are 14 and 9 as of next week. so this would also fit with the 15 yr deal.

right now, its looking like my home/car insurer is the move. they can do 15 yr, $80 a month, for 750k. guess it makes sense to look at other companies too.

I need to check if my current insurer will discount my other services if I do this with them.

good info. preciate it.
