059 – Tammy Symons – Managing your Mortgage 

In this episode, KT and Tammy Symons discuss:

  • The benefit of paying off your mortgage versus investing your money.
  • Some of the factors to consider when you’re going into retirement.
  • The historical pattern of mortgage interest rates over the last 10+ years and how it is changing now.
  • The pros and cons of some of the ways in which you can use your investments to pay/pay off your mortgage.

Key Takeaways:

  • There is no one size fits all answer to financial questions regarding your home.
  • Going into retirement with no major financial obligations is far more reassuring than having large financial obligations.
  • Pay attention to your interest rates over various debts – The rule of thumb states pay off your highest interest rate first.
  • Don’t take money out of your home to put it into the market.

“If you have a mortgage right now, this is the lowest mortgage that you are going to have. If you have gotten it over the last 10 years…”Tammy Symons
