In honor of Halloween, I was trying to come up with something scary to write about. And then it came to me . . . the acceleration clause. It's the language that allows a bank to 'call' a loan when and if they find out title has been transferred. Yes . . . the proverbial, mysterious, vengeful, eve...

It's great to see that the media is increasingly picking up stories about my favorite topics. I had the privilege of being interviewed by IBD recently. You can read the article in today's paper: "Seller Financing Can Seal the Deal in Rough Market." Here's the first couple paragraphs: "Owner will ...
