Paid off the 2nd mortgage.
Well, my vote by action on the payoff the mortgage debate is in. DW ER'd in all but name this year (she remains associated with her firm with a stipend for business development) which means we will drop into a much lower tax bracket. So we pulled cash we were holding and paid off the mortgage on the weekend house yesterday. Now we own our primary residence and the weekend place outright.
I just couldn't put aside the concern that the ~4% I could SWR from the payoff amount was only half the mortgage payment itself. I know the various alternative arguments but it is nice to have the annual expenses reduced.
