4.91% 30 year fixed with 25 years to go. We bought our first house 7 years ago and will sell it in two years, move elsewhere and buy a house for cash.

4.25% conforming, 15 year fixed

Ditto previous poster, but got lucky with an aggressive internet mortgage company. Luckily, the mortgage was resold to a reputable company a few months later.

I really want to pay off the mortgage, but the low rate makes it hard to justify...

Yeah, you guys with the 4.xx mortgages...keep 'em.

Until cash rates drop under 4.xx% that is...
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Wow, you guys have some great mortgage rates.

I paid mine off a couple of years ago, 6.5% 15 year mortgage. I am now dumping about $50k into it to fix things that are broken (dry rot, crumbling retaining wall, sliding doors which had fogged, new chimneys that were starting to lean ...).

Yesterday I fixed the rodent problem by adopting two kittens from the humane society. They are soo cute !
