$4,751.26 and an article relevant to our interests...

March 30th, 2016 at 02:13 pm

That's the official mortgage pay off amount. It came from the bank today. (Balance, interest, and a county recording fee)

But boy, they sure don't make it easy to pay it off!

I thought I'd be able to send the balance through the online payment portal linked to my checking account. I use that for regular payments. But no!

I have to go to the bank, get a cashier's check, and then fed ex it to the mortgage department of the same bank. Oh well.

I'm going to the branch this afternoon to get it done. I'm trying to contain my excitement until the balance is officially zero!

In other news, I quite enjoyed this article about retiring early and totally agreed with their financial methods.

    Oh yes, I remember that happened to us when we paid off a second mortgage! Our last payment was just $165 too. I sent regular mail though because although a major bank the processing center was in our same town. And actually maybe just a couple miles away!

    Congratulation! Amazing job. I like the article. But I know root of good his wife worked a few years after he did. He was more "stay at home" parent than retirement like MMM. But the idea is the same. Live on very little and make a lot of money!
