Re: mortgage versus debt free?

I would sleep better with less debt and a smaller portfolio.
Absolutely! *Not only that -- the income is probable, the outflow is guaranteed. Not a good combination!


Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
