SecondCor521, that is a good point. I think that if one is not already maxing out retirement savings such as 401K savings, it probably isn't yet time to pay off one's house.
At least that is my thinking. I suppose different situations are different. In my case I maxed out my TSP and paid off my house at the same time, but at the expense of any excess to put into taxable investments. Well, maybe some, but not as much as I would otherwise have accumulated.
