Let’s Get Rational

  • April 20, 2017

Sometimes I want to shout it to the rooftops.  “Let’s get rational!”  While rationality does not render every situation suitable for a HECM loan, inaccurate evaluation of the program and the credence given to myths and misconceptions still inhibits “the public” in a harmful way.  Seeing a perfect candidate reject a program that would be such a blessing to them and their family because of irrational fears is so disappointing!  I have helped a lot of people to improve their lives but I guess I can’t convince them all.  Thankfully, Financial Advisors, Elder Law attorneys, CPAs, Realtors, traditional Loan Officers and other professionals are now on board, because they took a rational look at the HECM program and can’t deny it’s value for some clients.  They now can influence the fearful and uninformed.  One such advocate can be seen here.
