Situation: sell home for $300K, owe $180K, will have $30K home improvement loan. I expect to net about $60K. I have about $40-50K in student loans which I have been paying on (off and on) for 20 YEARS.
My logic is thus: You cant "walk away" from student loans like you can a house if things go sideways financially. I am a vet so I did no money down.
I could use the proceeds for down payment, but would rather get out from under the student loans.
