HW Media CEO Clayton Collins on reverse mortgages
Today’s HousingWire Daily features our first crossover episode with the RMD Podcast, a monthly podcast covering hot topics in the reverse mortgage industry. The podcast is hosted by Chris Clow, editor at HousingWire’s latest acquisition, Reverse Mortgage Daily.
The episode features an interview with Clayton Collins, founder and CEO of HW Media. Chris and Clayton discuss the reverse mortgage industry and how Clayton was first introduced to housing media.
Here is a small preview of the interview, which has been lightly edited for length and clarity:
Chris Clow: What kinds of opportunities just in terms of your absorption of reverse, particularly recently, do you think could be coming for that industry in the near future?
Clayton Collins: If we thought that housing equity was going to be critical and housing wealth was going to be the key to funding retirement for the rapidly expanding baby boomer generation, that thesis has only gotten stronger as home prices across the country have skyrocketed in the last year-and-a-half. So, I get super excited and bullish on the future of helping homeowners access housing wealth, and using the equity they have in their homes to fund the things that they want and need to do in retirement.
I’m excited to be on the mortgage side, and hopefully provide this end of the market the information they need to expand their businesses, and make smarter and faster decisions. We’re aggressive and fast around here, and we hope we can help the reverse sector be just as aggressive and fast as they seek to meet this market need.
