That's fantastic!

I'm curious - if you don't mind sharing - what sort of return-on-investment rate you expect for your nest egg accounts over the next several years?

I only ask because it seems typical that younger folks invest in riskier stuff, having a longer time frame in mind, and expecting 7% or 8% long term returns. But older, retired folks often lean more towards safer, income type investments that generally might expect to have lower returns, since they have a shorter time frame to consider and don't want to suffer down markets.

Would you still expect your investments to beat that mortgage rate? Or did you decide it would be insane not to have the mortgage for other reasons?
