  • I don't know, but I dream about it, lol. We still have 23 years left on our mortgage, but we want to pay it off in the next 4 years.

  • I wish I knew. My parents have been mortgage free for as long as I can remember and I'm 32! i don't even remember them having a mortgage. Their first house that I lived in until I was 16 cost them about $25k. Can you imagine paying that for a house when that's what some people pay for a new car.

  • My dd moved in with her bf about 10 yrs ago and that was her goal. She paid off their house and their car and everything that he bought on credit. She's so good with money. Now they are working on buying land and a business. I'm sure they will pay that off too. I wish I had her talent with money!

  • A better question would be- how would it feel to be completely debt free house and everything. Can you imagine that? I've already crunched the numbers on that (yes I'm a nerd) and I know that we could live on a part time minimum wage job if all we had to pay was groceries, utilities, insurance, and fuel.

    We're not there yet, but I'm sure we will be in the next decade =)
