<<This brings up a sore spot I had with the mortgage company. Even though the first representative told me there no fees involved, when it got my payoff amount in an email, there was a $10 fee for them computing the payoff amount. I called and no matter what I said, they wouldn't waive the fee. To make sure they were completely paid off, I sent an extra $0.05 to them. Now that amount sits in an escrow account down there. I'm going to call weekly until I see a $0.05 check arrive in the mail. My hope is that they spend much more than the $10 fee they charged me to take care of this matter.


Heh, heh! Apparently your loving wife want to save you from this kind of stress by paying off the mortgage.

I bought a house as a rental and paid cash for it. A few years later my tenant had a fire and I collected $30,000 dollars or so for the damages. The check came to me, and I decided on the repairs and how to make them.

Easy peasy!
