What should I do with an extra $2,500 monthly cash?
100% of people found this answer helpful

I suggest you consider opening and funding a nonqualified investment account at a reputable online broker.  Charles Schwab, Interactive Brokers, and TD Ameritrade are good choices. Also, consider engaging an independent advisor at one of these brokers.

At 3.7%, assuming that's a fixed rate mortgage, I think it makes sense to pay off your mortgage as scheduled and not prepay.  Also, from a diversification perspective, I believe it's a good idea to not put all your eggs in one basket, i.e., qualified retirement accounts. The future is uncertain regarding tax rates and your need for pre-retirement liquidity.
