Here’s Mrs. Anonymous from the Midwest to share how she’s helping her family grow wealth and reach millionaire status!

Eliminating the largest debt in your life … Owning your home outright.

If you’re reading this and you’re thinking, “Well … you always have a mortgage. That’s just something you need to pay forever. No one pays off their mortgage.”

Well, I have a guest today that completely disagrees with that statement.

Talaat McNeely joins me today on the show to discuss how he and his wife, Tai, paid off their $330,000 mortgage in just 5 years. Not only did they complete this impressive feat incredibly fast, but they did it on a single income.

Should I Pay Off My Mortgage or Invest?

Our question of the month comes in from Luke from Indiana:


Hey Andy,

I was reading on your blog that you recently paid off your mortgage early. Congratulations!

I’m a Dave Ramsey guy like you and we’re getting close to baby step 6. I’m considering going heavy into paying off my mortgage like you did, but I’m also thinking it might be smarter for me to invest more for my retirement or just simply invest in the market. I also know market returns are unpredictable and we’re near all-time highs.

I have a 15-year mortgage at around 4% and the principal sits around $200,000. My wife and I are both working – we like what we do and combined we make around $200,000 per year. I feel like we could throw $50k per year at the mortgage and we’d be done in 4 years or less.

That could also be a good amount to throw at our retirement each year too.

What would you suggest for us? Should we pay off our mortgage or invest the money?
