The obvious alternative to mortgage debt is to rent a house instead of buying one.

It is often cheaper to rent rather than own the same thing, and this is especially true in neighbohoods with good schools.

Use the Patrick.net calculator to compare renting to owning.

Renting vs buying is also a lifestyle/cultural decision. I know people in Switzerland who only rent like everyone else out there. They plan on retiring in the 50's and then live a year in different cities in Europe and other parts of the world.
