I bought my home outright and am glad I did.

So did I. But it is not as great as it sounds. My property tax now is about the same as the Principle and Interest and Property Tax were when I still had the mortgage. So instead of the bank owning my house, now the state owns it.

Of course it would be even worse if the mortgage had not been paid off some years early.
