So I'm looking for any opinions on what someone my age, in my situation should do.

In my opinion it is best to pay off the house. Take the money you would have been giving the bank and invest it. DW and I have set up an equity line of credit on our house (we have no mortgage) so we have instant access to cash if an investment opportunity knocks (we like to dabble in real estate). With no mortgage, we are able to easily max out my 401K and both our Roth IRAs every year.
