Mortgage Payoff Update
As I proclaimed, lol, my husband and I are attempting to pay off our mortgage within 6 years or less – specifically, by the end of 2013. My personal goal is to shave another year off of that – so the end of 2012. In order to stay on track, I’ll be posting updates here as we make progress. Here’s what we have accomplished so far:
Payoff Amount on our goal start date (10/26/2011) – $62,634
Payoff Amount as of 11/20/2011 – $54,943.11
Our financial month runs from the 13th of one month to the 12th of the next, so I know how much extra we have after that. This month it looks like we’ll be throwing $5500 to the principal, so I look forward to being able to report another big reduction next week.
