If you read this under an earlier thread, please excuse the repost but I accidentally stuck it in the wrong place.I would have to come down on the side of paying off the mortgage.I just paid my mortage off first of this year. But I don't view my home as an investment in thesame vein as stocks. Even though the interest is tax deductible, you do have to pay backthe principal, all in fixed inflexible payments come rain or shine. A real anchor in mymind. My goal is to become debt free. And I have run my business that way also, whichgives me the cash to invest in stocks instead of paying off debt.A lot of the companies we follow here..........the ones considered Cash Kings, have nodebt...............and we consider that a good thing.Of course, this is one of those topics that can be debated both ways, and really boils downto personal preference. I can see both arguments, and in fact considered re-mortgagingmy house to invest more in the market, but in the end I decided that I like the debt freeposition better. I'm sure I sleep better.George
