Fear and Procrastination

The Relationship Between Procrastination and Stress

Procrastination not only affects our finances but also has a significant impact on our mental and emotional well-being. Delayed decision-making can lead to increased stress levels and a sense of being overwhelmed.

When we procrastinate, we often feel a constant nagging in the back of our minds. We know we have a decision to make or a task to complete, but we keep putting it off. This constant state of uncertainty and inaction can lead to anxiety and stress.

Additionally, as the deadline for making a decision or completing a task approaches, the stress intensifies. We may find ourselves rushing to finish at the last minute, which can result in subpar results or mistakes. This creates a cycle of stress and poor performance, further reinforcing the negative effects of procrastination.

Furthermore, procrastination can hinder our personal growth. By delaying important decisions, we miss out on opportunities for improving our lives. Whether it’s making  or addressing a difficult situation, delaying action can prevent us from solving a problem and enjoying our lives without worry.

In summary, procrastination can lead to increased stress levels, hinder personal growth, and create a cycle of anxiety and poor performance. It’s crucial to recognize the negative impact of delayed decision-making on our mental and emotional well-being and take steps to break free from a habit that keeps us stuck.

Do You Procrastinate?

The Financial Costs of Procrastination

Procrastination can have a significant financial impact on our lives. When we delay making important financial decisions, we miss out on potential opportunities and can incur unnecessary expenses. One common area where procrastination can be particularly costly is in retirement planning.

Many people put off saving for retirement, thinking they have plenty of time to start later. However, the power of compound interest means that the earlier you start saving, the more time your money has to grow. By delaying your retirement savings, you are effectively losing out on years of potential investment returns.

Additionally, procrastination can lead to poor financial decisions. When we wait until the last minute to make a financial choice, we often feel rushed and may not thoroughly consider all the options. This can result in impulsive or ill-informed decisions that can have long-term consequences.

For example, let’s say you are curious about reverse loans because you are still making a large mortgage payment every month and your income is fixed. If you have heard bad things about them, you might decide to not learn about their benefits and how funds from a reverse loan could be a potential solution to your worries about making mortgage payments.

If you procrastinate and wait, each month you are still making a mortgage payment when you could be saving that money and increasing your cash flow.

In summary, procrastinating on financial decisions can lead to missed opportunities, reduced wealth in the long run, and potentially poor financial choices. It’s important to recognize the hidden costs of procrastination and take action to overcome this habit.

The Pandemic

The last 18 months of life for everyone has been very hard and uncertain due to the Covid-19 pandemic.   It was particularly frightening for seniors because they were more likely to become ill with it and possibly die.

No one was left untouched by it, either by death or the loss of employment and most certainly the loss of structure and a feeling of safety.

I received many calls from seniors during this time, very afraid about running out of money and trying to take care of themselves, and at the same time, cut off from their families and feeling isolated.

Some had entered into forbearance agreements on their mortgages and the payments for them were paused, but they were now being notified by their Lender to resume them, and many did not have the income to start making payments again.

I received many calls for help, and I was able to provide everyone a reverse loan and at the least, make them feel a bit safer and and less anxious about what was going to happen to them.

It was challenging when we couldn’t meet personally, but I made it work for each client and we got through it together.

I am grateful that it seems we are moving forward with more confidence and less fear, and I am also grateful that I was able to help many seniors last year by providing them with more money and peace of mind and we survived the pandemic together.

Higher Reverse Loan Amounts

Effective this month and year, the HUD Lending Limits for FHA Reverse loans were increased from $765,600 to $822,375.00

This is quite a large increase over previous years and could possibly make a difference for senior borrowers who will now have more access to their home’s equity, than they would have had last year in 2020.

The Lending Limit caps a home’s value at this figure, even if a property is worth more, the reverse loan amount will always be calculated on the Lending Limit or the appraised value of the home, whichever is less and the age(s) of the youngest borrower.

For some seniors, this increase can make it now possible to do the loan, because the higher value will possibly provide them a larger loan amount that can pay off an existing mortgage with a high balance, whereas previously, the loan may have been not been adequate enough for refinancing an existing mortgage.

Mortgage interest rates are at the lowest they have ever previously been, and that includes the interest rates on reverse loans, too.  And in addition to very low rates, home values have increased substantially, creating more equity for many homeowners.

Whether it is Fixed loan or a Line of Credit, FHA HECM, or one of the Jumbo reverse loans, now is the best time to apply for one,take advantage of  low interest rates, and also the increased value of your home.

Use a reverse loan to  increase your cash flow and create a safety net for the future, and have funds for unplanned expenses, and gain peace of mind.

Unplanned Life Events

We can never know what might or could happen in our lives from day to day.   Recently it has been the pandemic of Covid-19 that has killed almost 200,000 Americans as I am writing this and the extreme fall-out from it which has created a massive amount of people who have lost their jobs and businesses.

Then there are the weather events.   Massive killer fires in the western half of our country and the East and the South have to face more hurricanes and flooding.  No one feels safe anymore and if you are a senior, even less so.

And that is why more seniors are seriously considering using a reverse loan so that they have money that is “banked” and available to them no matter what happens.

One example would be they have an insurance claim for damage to their home and the insurance company is fighting with them over it, at least they have money in the meanwhile to take care of their personal needs until they reach a settlement.

Add in isolation for seniors due to Covid-19, and anxiety about money is not a positive situation, but at the least having enough money reduces some of it, and about how to pay for food, care giving and other monthly expenses.

http://See what my clients are saying about me

If a senior has been relying on income from being employed to pay their mortgage payment, but now they are unemployed, they could refinance into a reverse loan that doesn’t have a monthly payment.

But reverse loans have a reputation for being expensive, but are they?   They have the same costs as a traditional loan,  but many people have heard they are expensive, but in truth, they are not.

Now more than any time in the past, is the time to learn about reverse loans, how much money you could receive, and if doing one is your best option to eliminate your worries and fears about the future.

Contact me for a chat about your situation and find out if a reverse loan be of value to you.
