Is It Smart to Pay Off Your Mortgage?

If you’ve ever considered taking some extra money and paying down (or paying off) your home mortgage, you may have found that arriving at a decision wasn’t as easy as you thought. The choice usually is this: either put those funds toward the mortgage, or invest it and hope for greater net returns.

There are two aspects to consider here: the emotional and the rational. And those two are often in conflict with one another.  How do you decide what to do?

Our “Professor” Rick Plum, CFP® addresses these concerns and offers a few helpful suggestions on what you should be thinking about on this week’s edition of Lucia Capital Group Weekly!
