Evan Farr has been practicing law since 1987. He is very highly regarded in the Elder Law field. His very specialized knowledge when it comes to the issues facing elderly Americans has improved the lives of many people and their families. Mr. Farr is nationally acclaimed and you can learn more about his practice at http://www.farrlawfirm.com/. I bring him to your attention because he is as knowledgeable about the HECM (reverse mortgage) program as any professional I have encountered over the years. In a recent blog he gives an accurate description of the program (rare indeed!) as well as comments as to why he urges some of his clients to participate. Seniors should consult with an expert like Mr. Farr. Frankly, the public’s understanding is woefully inaccurate. Take a look at an expert’s take on it here.
