@USAlover:Good for you! I wished we could do that, but our goal is
to get our mortgage paid off before we retire. We have relatives who
haven't, and now in their 70s they are struggling mightily to make their
mortgage payments. They've been in the same house over 30 years, but always
borrowed against it (advice given them by a financial planner) and now
they're underwater in a big way.
Nearly every financial planner told me not to pay off my house early.That's when I stopped listening to financial planners. They'll tell
you to do what makes them a little money.BTW, I paid off my home at
age 40 and it was the best thing in the world to do.
As a financial planner, YOU need to make as much money as you possibly can.The economy can go south at anytime.Be sure to take care of yourself
first and foremost.
Buy low, sell high.
