Interview with Suze Orman on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams

Pay Off Your Mortgage BEFORE Retiring

quotePay down the mortgage of your home, so that by the time you retire it’s PAID OFF. If you could do that, you’re going to have more money, because you have less expenses. Now, if you’re NOT going to stay in that home forever, DO NOT – and I repeat, DO NOT – pay down the mortgage of that home.” Suze Orman


I agree with Suze Orman when she says, “if you’re NOT going to stay in that home forever, DO NOT – and I repeat, DO NOT – pay down the mortgage of that home.” I mean why would you pay down the mortgage of a home you are not going to stay in, right? That’s just giving even more of your hard earned money away to the bank! So are their any exceptions to Suze Ormans statement?

Yes, so let me add my two cents as a real estate investor. I would pay down the mortgage of a home that I DO NOT live in BUT I am going to KEEP and rent out!  This is the only exception to paying down a mortgage for a home that you are not planning to stay in forever that still makes good business sense.
