Should I pay off my home mortgage early?

Paying off your mortgage may seem like a great idea, but there are a variety of factors to consider in the decision. One of the biggest is the cost of moving a large sum of money out of an existing investment to make your final mortgage payments. If the interest rate you pay on your mortgage is low, you may want to keep that money invested and continue making mortgage payments. On the other hand, as you near retirement, you might appreciate eliminating the debt to reduce your monthly expenses.

Also, holding a mortgage is key to many Americans' tax strategy because the interest paid could potentially be tax deductible. If mortgage interest is part of your tax strategy, consult with your tax professional before making the decision to own your home outright.
