Pay off home early, or save/invest?

Don’t even ask this question until you’ve covered these bases:

You have a robust emergency savings account and paid off high-interest loans like credit card and “payday” loans.

You’ve carefully considered retirement plan matching funds (if available) and you’ve reviewed your finances for balance: investment diversity and values-orientation through regular, automatic-pay charitable giving.

Cheat Sheet:

  • Emergency savings account: three to six to nine months of expenses, in an easy to access savings vehicle
  • Pay off high-interest debts
  • Contribute to employer-matched retirement funds
  • Review for diversity and regular, automatic charitable giving
  • Pay off other debts

Now —  Pay off the home mortgage, or save? We’ll walk through the steps in Part II for what works best for YOU and your situation.
