Or a prescription drug disclaimer. Try reading it real fast.

Okay, okay, let's put the animosity behind us. How about the following as a compromise? I think it covers all bases: congratulating the OP, an explicit statement that it isn't meant to be a facepunch, and some info and resources for educational purposes.




Congrats to the OP!!!! Being debt free is awesome!!!!


The following disclaimer is in no way meant to diminish your accomplishment, but is simply for educational purposes for the uninitiated:

Disclaimer: While pre-paying your mortgage may feel good, in the US, it is often a suboptimal financial decision that can delay FIRE while putting you at greater risk of losing your home during the pre-payment period. It is strongly encouraged that you do the math on your own situation to have a full understanding before making such a major financial decision.

MMM, who paid off his mortgage, had this to say: "...I will grudgingly admit that you will probably do much better investing in Index funds rather than paying off your mortgage."

Here is an excellent educational thread on the subject: https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/throw-down-the-gauntlet/dont-payoff-your-mortgage-club/

Most things are suboptimal. It's one of those words/meanings that sounds worse than it typically is.

But you'll miss the stupid disclaimers and make sub optimal investing decisions!
