Title: Large Down Payment Holding Location
Post by: Tezz24 on February 06, 2018, 10:36:43 PM
We have a large (i.e. >250K) down payment that we have pulled from the market and now it's just sitting in our checking account.

It's obviously for a HCOL area and in a competitive market we may need it quickly.

Where would you recommend we keep it? Are there FDIC issues in play? Split between our checking accounts? Put some in a vanguard money market fun?

Thanks

Maybe choose the more reliable FDIC options of these, one for each of you?

Money market is convenient too and over a short time the difference will be small.
