The Big Move: My wife and I have nearly $600,000 in our investment portfolio. Should we buy a home outright or get a mortgage?

Dear MarketWatch,

My wife and I are Americans living in London. We currently rent, mainly because London real estate is hugely expensive but also because we know London is not our long-term future. In the next year or so, we have plans to move back to the U.S., where we’ll purchase a house and start settling down a bit.

My wife and I are in our mid-30s. We have no kids and no desire to have a family, and we’re currently sitting on about $580,000 in our investment portfolio. This amount does not include our retirement savings.
