Eleven days ago I was home alone doing Saturday chores. One of the chores involved the cleaning of a ceiling twenty one feet up from the hard travertine floor that was accessible with an extension ladder. At three o’clock Sunday morning I started coming around and realized I was lying down in a hospital room with my wife sleeping in the recliner next to me. A ten hour black-out. Do not remember the paramedics, the ambulance ride to the hospital, the X-rays and CT scans or even my loving family crowding into the hospital room as I asked each of them the same questions, without pause, over and over and over and over again. My family was scared. I was clueless. I should have used a spotter.
Purchasing your first home, purchasing an income property, refinancing your current home to help pay for education or employing a reverse mortgage to eliminate monthly payments? Often we engage real estate financing to improve our financial wellbeing—we take a “step up”. We climb ladders to reach otherwise unattainable heights. Climbing a ladder can be intimidating, scary and dangerous.
Can I be your spotter? The next time you consider real estate financing let me hold the “ladder” for you. Working together the climb to new heights of financial wellbeing is more enjoyable and safely attainable.
