20 Scenes from Hug Your Mortgage Day at ASM

Matt Sapaula

I am a proud father, financial strategist, TV commentator and financial talk show host of Money Smart Radio

One of the greatest misconceptions I help people overcome is how their mortgage can be their friend, not their enemy.   I hear many homeowners and real estate investors say, "Matthew, the bank kills me on the interest I will pay them over 30 years!  I want to get rid of that problem soon!!".  Not so fast.  As a famous radio show personality, Paul Harvey, used to say, "And now for the rest of the story!".   To help me on this crusade of increasing financial education and wealth-building concepts of mortgage planning, is Amir Syed and Arnel Castillo.  Over the next few blog posts, I will share financial concepts that they help real estate owners implement with wiser use of a mortgage.
A mortgage is not just a debt instrument...but rather a wealth-building tool.  Here are some photos from a recent in-service training we did at American Street Mortgage (ASM). You can also get a free podcast download titled, "Pre-pay Your Mortgage Early - a Wise Thing to Do?" on my radio show's website.

Yeah, I'm always amazed that some people look upon debt as a bad thing and at the same time don't count the cost of their own capital in their financial calculations. They think that making a high down payment in order to lower their monthly payment somehow reduces the cost of living in their home. At a time when you can earn 7.5% tax free on diversified municipal debt when a 7 year ARM costs a tax-deductible 4% this is a big mistake.
