I agree with this line of thinking, also put down a solid(at least 20%) down payment. This is how most people get "upside down" on loans.

We kinda' did what a lot of others have donel I financed ours for 10yrs....could have wrote a check for it. But I wanted to "furnish" it really nice. With me that never seems to happen unless I do it right when I purchase an item.....I'm basically a cheapskate!! Whatever I have left after we're done with all the purchases goes right on the loan.....shouldn't be more than a couple of thousand dollars left at most....I should have it paid off in 6mos in the worst case. If not, the loan pmt is $100/mo
It's a lot better than putting the "furnishings" on a credit card at 9%.....
