Nice! Ive just had planning approved to add 2 bedrooms and an orangery to my house (the money i put in should double in value added to the house) once this is done im going to hammer the mortgage and try to pay it off over in about 5/6 years.
Ive always chose to invest in more properties rather than over pay on the mortgage, but i can now use the returns on those investments to pay off my house. I see both sides of the argument for investing vs paying off mortgage so feel il be getting the best of both worlds by doing this. Investing for me has given me a far better return compared to what i would save by being mortgage free, however i dont want to push my luck and i dont think paying your mortgage off can ever be a bad financial decision, especially since no one knows what the future holds.
