Bursting to share ...
« on: June 28, 2018, 03:17:11 PM »
Hi Everyone

Today has been a milestone for the Slow Road family.... we are now officially ‘debt free’ !

No mortgage or any other form on enslavement :-)

Had to share. I realise this is just one step to FI, but I couldn’t let it pass.

Thanks for your [often] indirect and direct support. Progress is being made.

Congrats!

How much debt did you have and how did you pay it off?

Hmm, because you paid the mortgage off, or because you sold and moved into a rental?

Thanks for your kind words :-)

Debt was mostly mortgage, paid off by overpaying whenever possible. I was lucky enough to receive a bonus this year, and put that straight against the outstanding amount.

When I first stumbled across MMM (2016 - whilst on holiday) we had nearly £100k outstanding. Today we own our house (and everything else around us).

I try not to regret, but I wish I’d come across MMM sooner!

Congratulations!

Try to keep the momentum and start investing the money you would have otherwise put towards your mortgage.
Good luck!
