Also, I don't know where you live, but my philosophy was to not consider myself out of debt until I had a paid-off house in a safe neighborhood where I am not assessed property tax. Some areas have property tax on all homes, so you can't do anything about that, and other areas have such high prices on homes that your best bet might be to accept that, when you retire, you will have to sell the home, get your equity out of it, and re-locate to someplace cheaper.

Is this in the US? If I'm reading your post right, you don't pay any property tax! I did not know this was possible in America.
