20% down and invest the rest from House Sale

Post by amindu »

Hello All - we are in the process of selling our home and purchasing a new one. Given that we have equity in the house beyond the 20% required down on the new house should we just put all of it in the new place or invest the difference in the market? Have 20 years before we get to retirement age. All tax advantaged are maxed out, backdoor Roth is maxed out. Additional proceeds would go into the taxable account.

Thanks.
