Just wondering how long contractors in general take to pay off their mortgage.

Of course there are lots of variables such as mortgage amount left,daily rate, life style etc etc.....But if we assume an average mortgage amount of 175000 and a daily rate of 400....how early have you paid it off??

So lets ignore all the variables required to make a reasonably helpful answer and ask anyway knowing that the answer is just complete bolox

Good plan :laugh

Where can I vote on monobrows competition.

I got my first mortgage at 27. Started contracting a year later, paid if off 3 years later. Borrowed another 150K, paid that off 5 years late. Assume at 400 per day that you can pay off 25k - 30k per year from contracting alone.

Answer your question.

Any excess I pay off mine is only going to effectively work for me at just a tad over 1%. Why would I want to invest my cash in that scheme?

Don't tell the wife you've paid the mortgage off she'll just want to move to a bigger place. Happened to me last year.

You're getting confused with Tingles. He also upgraded his five bedroom mansion to a caravan. A step up his wife said as she kept the house. :eyes

Funnily enough, the vol-au-vent was originally adapted from the Tamil custom of eating from banana leaves.
