How about if you pay taxes and don't get a return?

Many people go out and buy a new car. I see new cars all over at this time of year.

Do you really get that much better a price for your home when you sell if the bond is paid? I could do that, but I wonder what others' experiences are with selling a home with no bond. My friend got no more at all.

If I thought I might want to move and resell my home in TV i would not pay off the bond since buyers will usually not appreciate/understand comparing the price of a house with a bond to one without one.

On the other hand if I considered my house in TV to be my final destination I would pay off the bond ASAP.

We abhor interest payments, unless it can increase opportunity elsewhere.

Back when we purchased our home you could only pay off the bond at a certain time. We had to carry the bond and its interest for 11 months and then paid it all off promptly, which we viewed as being punitive.

Our decision had nothing to do with selling our home.
