FEATURED QUERY: Do you rely on tips for a living? Tell us more
Roughly 32% of Americans own their own homes free and clear. They have paid off their mortgages and the title is held in their name alone.
Are you one of the select few in this country who can claim to be mortgage free? If so, tell Marketplace about it here.
Unfortunately (and perhaps not surprisingly) housing economists we’ve spoken to say that the ranks of the mortgage-free homeowners will likely shrink in the future. So, while you’re still out there, we have some questions for you: How did you do it? How did it feel when you made your last payment? What does it mean to you that you are the sole owner of your home?
