Me too - as the original poster, this appears to be the consensus :)

And after doing the math and carefully reading the terms of the
mortgage on our fourplex, including its amortization schedule, we
decided that it isn't worth it to pay it down, even though we'd save
some interest. As Catherine said, we'd be better off with a liquid
landlord e-fund for fixit jobs, as well as building savings so we
can pick up other income property.

Thank you all!
