Well I have to say that Fidelity site made me feel somewhat better.

Glad to hear it. If you want another comparison and you have accounts at Vanguard, they have a similar site, although I find it more cumbersome to use than the Fidelity site.

I still think it would be better if I had the house totally paid off so that I would have no debt.

You could consider taking a withdrawal out of your rollover IRA, or using other savings if they are available, to pay off the rest of the mortgage in a lump sum. You may want to look at the timing of this, and, say, wait until January of next year to take the money out, due to tax consequences.

Texas may not have an income tax but believe me they get you but good with property taxes.

Having owned a couple of houses in Texas, I understand. ;-)
