I'm very fortunate that I do have some assets to liquidate that will cover a down payment. It's just that whenever I think about going to the bank and cashing in these saving bonds I am freaking out. No matter how I rationalize it in my mind that putting this money into a house has more earning potential (but higher risk) than bonds I panic. It's not like this money is disappearing or is being spent on something frivolous, but I can't bring myself to walk my butt down to the bank and take care of this. :(
What was the best part of the whole process of buying a home?
