Do NOT Pay Off Your Mortgage

The Money Podcast

Dec 21 2023 • 25 mins

Rob challenges the norm and the expected in this episode and outlines the reasons why paying off your mortgage could actually be a bad financial decision for you! Rob also discusses the current state of the housing market including the opportunities to be found and how you can find out more ways to leverage the crash and create multiple streams of income.


  • The idea of lower monthly outgoings and owning your house outright can be appealing but these aren’t always good reasons to pay off your mortgage.
  • It’s likely you will get a better return investing any money into alternative assets rather than using it to pay off your mortgage.
  • Inflation will effectively save you money on your mortgage by devaluing its cash value over time. Instead of paying your mortgage down, let inflation do it for you.
  • There may be properties to buy soon that will present a better cash flow than when there were record low interest rates.
