I wouldn't go to a fortune teller, and I won't pay $3500 for software that shows me how to prepay my mortgage. I can pay pennies on the dollar for software that will generate any number of amortization tables showing the impact of variable amounts of payoff and all the benefits.
Many financial advisers recommend paying the mortgage off last, focusing on all the higher rate interest accounts first - bank cards, store accounts, car loans, etc. The only loans with a lower priority for payoff is those loans with lower interest rates than the mortgage, such as government-backed student loans.
I've yet to see one UFF post that made any mention of paying off the high-interest credit cards, store accounts, etc. Just the mortgage w/HELOC has been the focus of all the UFF promoters.
All those average Joe's with $5000 to $30,000 in higher-interest bank cards would benefit more by accelerating the card payoff first, as those "average" cardholders are often paying only 2% of the principal debt each month. The $100+ interest charges monthly per typical account eat up the discretionary income faster than the home mortgage interest that is deductible.
So why no mention on getting rid of credit card debt first???

That is totally ridiculous. My Sub-chapter S corporation buys my business vehicle. Using a HELOC to finance the vehicle purchase would be mixing personal with business funds. The corporation purchases the vehicle, and 100% of the interest is deductible against the corporate income. Mixing in the HELOC could have tax consequences that would cost me money in the long run.

May be just the ticket for Average Joe. If I was average, my home business success over the last 24 years probably wouldn't be near what it is. I'll let others claim the bragging rights to "Average".
Bring a better argument next time, huh!
A helpful list of criteria for checking out that next business opportunity.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
