Saving On Mortgage Interest

Often, we jokingly tell them not to look at it and to just sign it, as viewing this sheet may cause them to have second thoughts about what they are doing. The Truth in Lending form shows the total amount paid over the life of the loan, including the principal and interest. This number is usually a scary one as it is a huge amount of money. Unfortunately, this is how the system works and interest is a nasty bi-product of the loan process.

a pile of booksEver since I was a child, I’ve liked to read. From my favorite little Brown Bear stories, through my teen years spent with Nancy Drew and Cherry Ames, RN, books held a fascination for me. They were able to transport me to unknown places, where I engaged in multiple adventures. Sometimes I was a teen super sleuth, other times I saw myself as a compassionate registered nurse. No matter the setting or adventure, a book was ready to whisk me there.

Do You Remember?

These memories were recently stirred by one of our clients.
