Mortgage: Is Now the Time to Buy and Should I Worry About Paying My Mortgage Off?

Episode Summary

When is the best time to purchase a home? Should I be worried about paying off my mortgage if that is the only debt I currently have? These are the questions I cover in today’s episode.

Buying a home is a great investment. You are able to have a return on your investment when purchasing a home rather than losing money as you would when renting.

I know a lot of us either have the goal of owning a home, or we already do own a home, but sometimes I hear people say that they are debt free and want to know if the mortgage counts. So today I dive into all things mortgages: whether you should pay it off to be debt-free, when to buy a home and should you purchase now or wait until a “better” time.

In this episode I share:

  • When to know the best time to purchase a home
  • What happens if you wait to purchase a home until you are “ready”
  • How and when to pay off your mortgage
  • The effect of interest rates and home prices on purchasing decisions
