Risking his career to help seniors avoid making a costly mistake, Anderson wrote Reverse Mortgage Dangers as a daring warning. Seldom are senior citizens given all possible negatives of this "free no-risk money", and told the many pitfalls they must seriously consider before signing anything.
"Sometimes a reverse mortgage is a good idea, but most often it is not", declares Anderson. He explains the pros, cons, pitfalls, drawbacks and disadvantages of this poorly-understood financial instrument. This unique book explains the many secrets of this highly-touted "safe and secure free seniors' money" , covering scams, frauds, and other problems. Is a senior's reverse mortgage ever a good idea? Is it a banking scheme or a government blessing? This unique fact-filled book has all the remarkable useful answers.
Residential mortgages of the "forward" variety have for years led the market. But as our population ages, and more individuals reach the magic "62 years" switching out of conventional loans to home equity conversion loans (HECMs) has become a major financial planning tool.
Getting a mortgage of any type requires serious study and comparison shopping. Mortgage brokers are not created equal! Mortgage loans come in all flavors. Morrtgage payments can vary greatly.
Mortgage related issues will always be of primary importance to every consumer seeking the American dream.
