Q&A: Should I use my 401k to pay off my mortgage?

From a Dallas Morning News Dollar Wise reader:

Q: I was wondering if it makes sense to pay off my mortgage with funds from my 401k? I’m only three years into paying for this house at an interest rate of %5.8. I have a balance of about $190,000 with about that same amount in my401k. My thinking is that the interest I would save is worth the loss of growth in the retirement fund. Plus I would love to be able to live until retirement without that hefty payment every month.

Does this make sense?

House Help- government programs

I recently received an email asking for advice on how to avoid foreclosure and negotiate with the lender. I found some interesting resources that I thought I would share.

Please beware of foreclosure scams- the government has free housing counselors at 1-888-995-4673.

The government has implemented several housing programs. Check out this website for more information http://www.makinghomeaffordable.gov/. There is the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) and the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP).
