BnB-E3-Should I pre-pay my homeloan?



In this podcast I am going to talk about a situation where a person with a homeloan has received some lumpsum money and is unable to decide whether one should prepay the loan and become debt-free or one should keep this money and let the loan run through its tenure

I have also developed a tool to figure out each case and the tool is available FREE here. No registration required.
