Depends on your goals…

Where your at in Your plan?
Are you an aggressive or conservative investor?

The moment you pay the extra $1500 to the principal is the moment you get a 8.25% return on your money.

With $1500 a month that’s an extra 18k a year.

Could you turn that money over once, twice, Maybe even three times in a year by buying some houses and turning the money over for cash? Or passively do some Lonnie deals and get some great yields and extend the money over a few more years.

How about buy some discounted paper?

We just bought a business property that we have our current business in but plan on selling the property in 5 years when we sell the business, not necessarily together. We have an 8 1/4% mortgage and we’ve been putting $1500 a month extra towards the principal to pay off the mortgage in 5-7 years. Is this a good idea or should we invest the extra money elsewhere? What are the guidelines?
