Why You Shouldn’t Pay Off Your Mortgage Early - Episode 251

A mortgage is one of the most efficient debts you can have and paying it off early is often one of the biggest mistakes people make. In this episode Kim and Spencer talk about the importance of having control over your finances and using tax efficiencies and deductions.


They also bust the myth of converting your mortgage to a home equity and why that simply doesn’t work and why appreciation shouldn’t even be a factor in your house buying decision.


Tune in with Kim D. H. Butler and Spencer Shaw to find out how to take control of your finances today. Do you have a question you would like answered on the show? Please send it to us at and we may answer it in an upcoming episode.
