Why isn’t it a good idea to pay off your mortgage?

Paying off a mortgage quickly doesn’t make a lot of financial sense, but it does give a lot of homeowners a great deal of comfort. For it to make sense for you, the investment’s annualized rate of return needs to earn more than the cost of your mortgage interest rate. With many homeowners sitting on some of the lowest rates in history, (3.5%–5.5%) it’s not hard to achieve a higher rate of return. What makes it hard is that there are few guarantees in investments. While the stock market has produced a rate of return close to 10% over the last 90 years, individual investments lose money every day. Even real estate can include risk from market conditions and lack of liquidity. Working with a professional financial planner and mortgage loan officer is the best way to achieve confidence in your personal financial goals.

Gordon was timely in all communication, even when my calls came late on Sunday nights. We greatly appreciated his willingness to reach out to us with updates on the buying process and his prompt responses whenever I had a question. He was thorough in his handling of our business and gentle with his own recomendations. As a first timer, I needed a bit more guidance and Gordon provided that. Thank you.

Gordon was just great to work with. I was traveling and Gordon took it upon himself to ensure all inspection work was complete and other obligations of the seller were met. He always was available when I called or text. As an always anxious buyer or seller, that’s important. Just totally a nice, trustworthy guy. Thanks for making it easy Gordon.

We met Gordon with another agent at an Open House one Sunday afternoon. He listened to exactly what we wanted and immediately offered a showing of multiple properties that very next week. He was immediately attentive to our needs and very respectful of our difficult work schedule. Gordon did a fantastic job in helping us navigate the complex due diligence and closing process. He did a great job keeping the deal alive and moving forward!
