FOREVER IN DEBT
How old will you be in 30 years? Is that how long you want to wait, to do the things you always wanted to do? So the question is: are you going to put up with a 30 year mortgage - for what amounts to be almost your entire life - or are you going to do something about it?
Imagine how life would be if you had paid your mortgage off 5 -10 years earlier than originally planned. You will now have some real choices - whether it is overseas holidays, a university education for your kids, spending time with family, renovating your home or saving for retirement.
Imagine having cash in your pocket, money in the bank and not feeling vulnerable when things don't go according to plan. Imagine a life of no financial stress because your usual $2,500+ mortgage payment is creating wealth for your family.
Imagine being mortgage free!
Debt As A Way of Life
Everyday on the TV we see advertising with 'interest free' this and 'interest free' that, enticing us to buy consumer goods now and pay later. These ads look like you're getting a bargain, but remember you're paying full retail for these items and by the time you have paid them off they are probably worth a fraction of what you paid for them.
Credit card transactions have trebled in number over the last 10 years and now account for around 23% of non-cash payments. At the end of 2007, credit card advances outstanding totalled $5.2 billion, while credit card billings for the year on New Zealand cards were $28.2 billion.
A total of 2.5 million bank credit cards were on issue. Have you ever noticed that the bank increased your credit card limit without even asking you? Banks are there to lend money... the longer the better. That's how they make their billions of dollars in profits. And it's okay to be profitable... but - don't make it at your expense.
Remember, debt is a road to nowhere; yet we spend on average more than we earn... we must change this way of thinking and understand how we can control the amount of debt we incur.
There is a only ONE WAY out of the “roundabout” of debt. As a homeowner, understand that you do have control. You are not helpless and can do things to get you and your family closer to being mortgage free.
It’s also important to remember that home price appreciation should not be relied upon to eclipse the risks of mortgage debt. In other words, don’t count on a rise in the value of property to save you.
