Even though it’s about 13 years ago, I remember being stressed at times when planning our wedding. Just like we heard at the top of the show, as soon as you announce your engagement it can feel like you’re being swarmed with questions about the big day. But as much as your loved ones mean […]
Want to be completely debt free, including your house? Find out the key changes one couple made to pay off their mortgage in less than 5 years!
Pay Your Mortgage Off Faster
What would you do if you owed your home free and clear like Andy does now?
With no mortgage payment what options would open up?
There’s a good chance you’d love to get rid of your mortgage, but the idea of getting rid of such a huge amount makes it seem impossible.
Forget paying it off in 5 years, you may struggle to even see a way to reduce it in half.
Right now median purchase price of a home here in the United States is $235,000, with 10% down. Now if you live in D.C. you’re looking at $400,000 with my buddies in Cali close behind at around $350,000.
Not cheap. Probably the biggest purchase you’ll make.
Which is why I asked my buddy and Marriage, Kids, and Money creator, Andy Hill, to come on. He’s an awesome guy, really excited to get couples closer to their debt free goals.
We both know that not everyone can replicate what Andy and his wife Nicole did – we all have different circumstances – but there’s a lot to their process that could make all the difference with you and your home.
In this episode, we discuss:
- why they were adamant about knocking out their mortgage in 5 years
- steps that made the difference with paying off their mortgage
- tools to help you be debt free faster
Hope you enjoy!
Speaking of Andy, we’ve teamed up with friends on a free Facebook community called Thriving Families.
It’s a fun group where we share our wins and ideas with each other on how to thrive as a family. Come join us!
