Paid off our house today
« on: April 27, 2016, 09:22:40 AM »
Well sort of....

We are keeping the mortgage, but our unqualified investments ("mortgage sinking fund") now exceed our mortgage by a couple of thousand.

We know that if we had to walk in and pay it off, we could.  And for me that is enough.

We will keep it in the investments, and of course it can go down but we don't feel a need to pay off our mortgage until we actually RE, re-locate, and purchase a new property.  Will keep the money working for us and enjoy our very low interest rate.
