Pete the Planner: Should I pay off my mortgage before retirement?

The unknown choice, especially if you choose to invite risk to the party, is to try and grow the $750 per month over the next seven years, and then see what happens. I mean, $750 per month for seven years will leave you with over $75,000, as long as you average a reasonable 5% of return. That’s not chump change. 

I’m sure there’s a technically perfect answer to this question, but I’m not interested in it. You tipped your hand, Gloria. You said it yourself, you don’t need to pay off your mortgage in order to retire successfully. Therefore, don’t be in a hurry to do so. Let the loan run its course.

If you invest your $750 per month for seven years, you will be greeted with $75,000, an affordable mortgage payment for just over two years, and you will receive a gigantic raise when the mortgage is finally paid off. The sudden disappearance of a payment is the same as a raise. And what I know about retirees is they never turn down a nice little raise two to three years into retirement.
