Good Press

  • June 11, 2015

For several years now you have heard me complain about the biased, downright inaccurate treatment that the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) has received from the press in general.  I really was not overreacting!  The harm done to elderly Americans by the misconceptions enthusiastically and erroneously featured is real.  Because of these perceptions, many reject the idea out of hand and it could have been a true blessing for them and their families.  Well I still complain but there is progress!  Mainstream, highly respected publications are seeing the light and telling the truth.  Forbes, The Wall Street Journal and The Journal of Financial Planning are among them.  Ask me and I’ll flood you with examples!  In fact I’m happy to present to your group my 1 hour Lunch and Learn on the Myths of Reverse Mortgages.  The Huffington Post chimes in here.
