I paid it when I was at $125k in income. This question is impossible to answer without more context. I was at the beginning of my career then and I was very confident that I would be able to save later in life. It was a trade off I made to live in a nicer place at an age when I really could enjoy it and it was worth it to me. You have to decide your priorities
