Something else to keep in mind and I'm sure there will be differing opinions on this one.

YOU CAN'T SPEND YOUR HOUSE. Money invested in the market becomes spendable cash later. How does one spend the "equity" they've built up in their home. Well really there's only two ways to do so. 1. Borrow agains it and 2. sell your home. In either case, it doesn't really seem like you own that equity at all. Does it.

Remember, cash is king. Investing in the market is more profitable, more flexible and thereby more valuable than "investing" in your home/mortgage.
