"Harlan Accola has made the case in a clear and easy to understand manner for considering a reverse mortgage as part of a responsible retirement income plan. His Cinderella analogy is apt; reverse mortgages are under appreciated and are poised to become more popular with retirees. This book can help many Americans to understand why the conventional wisdom about saving home equity to be used as a last resort in retirement rarely makes much sense."
"Reverse mortgages need to be better understood by the baby boomer retirees as it represents a viable retirement income solution for millions. However, biases and misconceptions are holding people back from unlocking the full potential of their home in retirement. Harlan's book points out some of the key aspects of why American's dislike reverse mortgages and how to overcome this psychological barrier."
"To understand the critical role home equity plays in financial planning, one must visualize the full story. In his book, Harlan tells us how the story can unfold in his characteristic common-sense style. With his relevant and creative illustrations, the reader will have a better framwork for making financial decisions about retirement."
