If you own a house then your living expenses are vastly reduced. If I owned my house outright at the present time my monthly outgoings would be roughly halved. If this were the case I could afford to work maybe 3 days a week instead of 5 - in other words there is a disincentive to work. If you can work half the amount of time to achieve the same standard of living, wouldn't you choose to do that? Sticking money in a bank account is in any case the bare minimum you could make from your money.
