I just sold a bunch for that reason. It just did not make sence to have a whole bunch of money tied down in the basement. Paying down the morgage made more sense at this point. I beleive there will be a breaking point when these big toys will drop in value.

I want to stick to 5, still need some sort of a hobby and ready to accept a loss some where down the road., like a boat, snow mobile.... however, if I was a new comer to this, no way would I splurge that kind of $ to get in.

One guy in QC paid 12k for a TSPP. Money was secondary. He just wanted the title for his kids.

Nah, just move out to New Brunswick like I did. Your mortgage will be paid off, and you get to keep everything!
