The Dutch Are Making Extra Mortgage Payments!

Today I read an article about the fact that the Dutch have become aware of the fact that they have too much debt. Our country has managed to accumulate a huge amount of debt due to weird tax breaks and other government incentives. This situation has become untenable.

All Dutch banks have noticed an increase in the amount of people who are making extra mortgage payments. The amount of money people are now using to pay off their mortgages has also increased. For the first time in many, many years our mountain of debt might actually be decreased.

Go Dutch!

Paying off your mortgage and making extra mortgage payments seem to have become a trend in our country. What about your country?

    It’s anecdotal, but I’ve found that more of my friends and neighbors are making extra payments to principal lately. My mom is on a path to pay off the mortgage in the next 5 years — I smile every time I think of that.

    Just found the blog — I’m excited to read my way through it.
