90% of the people have a mortgage...its normal and good....but u should try and pay it off as fast as u can so u dont pay interest
its stupid to have a mortgage and pay interest when u have the $$$ to pay for it up front without any type of interest....i dont understand why these wealthy athletes and rappers (there black most of the time ) opt for payments and then ball out and blow there money on foolish sh*t then end up without a house cause they cant make the payments on it
I take it you never bought a home before. unless your into real estate and flipping houses left and right or you have no plans on moving anywhere else, paying cash in today market isn't that smart.
property taxes is one of the main reason ppl lose their homes not just interest
