Eliminated my mortgage
« on: September 28, 2017, 10:22:21 AM »
Finished building/moving into my new home this month. Sold my old home, reduced my debt by 180k, eliminated my mortgage, and now live in a smaller, more efficient, simpler, paid off house.

I'm looking at an opportunity to downsize from my clown mansion. I could almost pay for the house I'm considering with the equity I have in the clown mansion. In other words, spending almost nothing out of pocket, I could eliminate the next 25 years of 10k/yr mortgage paymemts and still have a nice place to live.
