In fact it could be more possible than not to be mortgage free at a younger age if you were to be very prudent in your spending and not purchasing a property way over your means. Also critical would be to take full advantage of the lenders lump sum payment privileges. Increasing your regular mortgage payments by the allowed percentage set by the lenders could help too. You may want to consider lowering your amortization down from 25 years, to the point where you are comfortable with making a larger monthly, or bi-weekly, or even weekly payments.
