Congrats on becoming a billionaire :beer
it is 3.0 Million but thanks :)
$3,000,000 still has 2 commas. I also thought maybe you were a billionaire lol.
I see I guess I am not a good communicator, haha!

Paid Off Our Mortgage!!

Post by kjbasser »

[Thread merged into here --admin LadyGeek]

We wiped out the rest of our mortgage this week. Feels great and just wanted to share with the community as I plan on keeping this relatively quiet in my personal life. Wife and I never made over 120k combined HHI, 35/34 year old electrician and x-ray tech with two kids. Low cost of living state with good jobs and a lot of discipline.

Next stop early retirement!

Congratulations!

A couple of things to do now that the mortgage is paid off;

1) Contact your home insurance company to have them take the lender off of your home insurance policy.

2) Be sure stop any automatic mortgage payments. If you had an escrow account then be sure that your home insurance and property taxes get paid on time even if you do not get a bill.

3) It may take a month or more for the paperwork to clear to remove the mortgage lien from your property. Save the paperwork that says the lien was removed since that can be important. Be sure to check with your county to to make sure that the lien was actually removed even though you got the paperwork saying that it was. The problem is that once in a blue moon it will not actually be removed and it can be a mess if you do not find this out until decades from now and have to get it fixed long after the lender is merged with some other company. It will be much easier to get any problems fixed now. In my area you can see lien on a property on the counties web site but in some area you may need to go into the county courthouse to ask how to check on that.

I too paid off our mortgage early and really glad we did it in our 30's.

Congratulations! That's a big milestone. :sharebeer We paid ours off just over a year ago and have no regrets at all.

Be sure to inform your insurance company to send premium notices to you, and also be sure that your tax assessor sends payment notices to you as well.

Nice job! That is a great accomplishment for a couple so young.

We were starting the mortgage on our current home at age 36. It was paid off earlier than the length of the mortgage. As well, we put down about 50%, so the mortgage wasn't all that much of a burden.

OP, are you formally mapping to early retirement because of your trade? Sometimes trades really take it out of you, physically. My BIL is a mechanic, aged 63, and he is very selective on the job tickets he picks up. He has back issues due to twisting and turning to get to the various systems he has to work on. His father was a mechanic, and he had back issues, also.

I imagine you do some physical work similar in your job.

Again, congrats! :sharebeer

These days I work more in controls and automation, not too much construction. Eventually I’ll will transition to a supervisory role if I stay put when I’m ready to put my tools down. In all reality who knows if I’ll retire early, but the flexibility is what I’m after.

My main goal was the house so we can enjoy the extra cash flow, ramp up investing even more and slow down a little bit.

Thanks for all the support, it’s much appreciated. Still doesn’t feel real, maybe it won’t since we’ve been pretty methodical about it.

Exceeded 2mm in investments and home equity this morning while tabulating quarterly data. NW as percentage: 48.52% tax-advantaged, 30.08% taxable, 21.4% home equity. All self-built (ie no inheritance). Hoping to exceed this threshold in investments only in next 2-3 years. The power of compounding is starting to be noticeable - thank you Bogleheads! :sharebeer
I can't believe it but surpassed 2mm in investments alone due to investment appreciation/normal contributions. NW as percentage: 50.21% tax-advantaged, 31.59% taxable, 18.2% home equity. Current thinking/target is between 4-5mm for a 'non-traditional retirement' (work on my schedule, on my interests, where money is not critical). Hoping to achieve this around 50 yo (11.5 years to go). Thank you all again!!

I hope that in not too many years a one-day drop or rise of $100,000 in your portfolio will cause you to merely raise one eyebrow and say, "Hmm, that's interesting."

We are halfway to the two comma club. Broke $500,000 net worth (home value included) on yesterday's monthly spreadsheet update, no debts. Aiming to retire in ten-ish years, at 62.

Many thanks to the contributors and discussions on this site. It sounds trite, but we couldn't have done it without your help.

Yesterday's market action put us over $2,000,000 net worth for the first time. :beer

It took 50 years to get to $1,000,000 and about 5 more years to get the second million.

Tallied up our accounts for the monthly spreadsheet entry and our retirement accounts have now cracked $200,000! Took from July 2012 to get from first invested dollar to November 2019 to reach $100,000 invested. Then seventeen months to get from $100,000 to $200,000.

I have a spreadsheet that calculates how many X I have for a given amount annual expenses. It has multiple columns, one for each annual expense level (hope that makes sense). As of this morning I have exceeded 25x for the last (highest) expense column on the spreadsheet (which I had never actually considered realistic). So technically my portfolio is now off the chart.

I updated my net worth in March and realized that I passed $1M in my individual retirement accounts at 43 (excluding my husband’s accounts as he started saving later than me).

We are at $1.5M combined so on our way to early retirement!

Updated my wife (32) and I (37) balance sheet yesterday. Finally broke the 2 comma club with home equity. Feel like the plan is finally rolling.

1.05M :mrgreen:

Next step, 2 comma club on investments only. Hopefully by the end of the year.

Good job! The first 100k always seems to be the hardest, probably because that's when even small unexpected expenses can knock your proverbial financial boat askew.

I'm really excited that I finally have a retirement plan in place.
I'm young but anxiety around finances kept me putting it off for like 3 years because I just couldn't do it.
1 week on the bogleheads wiki and forum...it's set
I went with the 3 fund with % bonds = age for simplicity.
Couldn't believe how easy this all actually was. :oops:

Now I'm feeling ready to actually learn more (back door roth maybe!) and try to optimize some more.

A few years back, I created a wallet-sized handout to give to anyone interested in learning how to invest for their retirement. In this way, they can research everything later, when they have time to think about their retirement.

This is a link to last posted version. (I've tweaked it for readability since then, but this version is good enough to get folks started.)

We crossed the 2 million mark today in our investments. It took not quite 7 years from when we reached the 1 million mark. FWIW, we are a one-earner family of 4 and my main profession is a public school teacher.

Re: Post your Financial Milestone Announcements Here

Hadn’t run net worth numbers in awhile. Crunched today and was comfortably above 4 million. Hadn’t broken 4 before to my knowledge.

It’s not enough for my current lifestyle with no income (includes 900k home equity) but it is causing me to wonder at what point will I have enough that the extra work time isn’t worth it. Problem is I’m making by far the highest total comp I’ve ever made so NW will move upwardly rapidly now with each additional work year.

It took ~9 years but I got there! I'm 37, never made more than $37,000 a year but maxed out my Roth every year and had some small IRA's + matching from employers. Enjoying it before the market goes down :)

Congrats, fellow Boglehead. It's refreshing to hear positive news, seeing as how it tends to happen slowly over many years, while negative stuff just pours in daily. May your next $100k come faster than then 1st! :beer
