In my extensive research, I've determined that 100% of all foreclosures occur on houses with a mortgage.

I think it's best to aggressively pay off your house and then put your monthly payment towards investing.

It may not be the mathematically best approach, but on a risk adjusted basis, it's better. Paying off your house is a guaranteed 4.75% return - you can't get that high of a return on any guaranteed investment.
