"Thats great, i am happy for you but dont loose sight on paying your new place off. Its not yours till the bank is paid off. Thats another scam, the bank takes so much of your money. You spend 10 years just paying interest off. Its a death trap.
"If your place is fully paid off and yours, in that case, then brother, I am super super happy for you and a job well done. If it's not paid then my man, Try your level best to pay it off as fast as you can."
Glency Mutandwa said:
"Congrats....the good Lord will surely open more doors for you. Start thinking big and consider buying another house so that you become a landlord and that's how you start investment for your future. All the best."
