| *Example:*
Apartment is worth 600k, so 200k for taxes. Mortgage is 300k.
Value thus for taxes is 200k-300k= -100k.

Could you please be kind and explain more?

My point of Q#2 is: If I bought an apartment for 600K, I will pay my savings i.e. 200K upfront, Remaining: 400K... where I will take a mortgage and thus I have to pay in total 'I guess' 550K... maybe?

My question is: Should the person strive to pay as much as possible so that s/he can pay it off in for example 15 years? Or, Is it better to pay as little as possible to have the mortgage running forever and ever?

Sorry... I think I need help
