He’s comes off as one of those guys that asks you how much you can afford for a monthly payment the moment you walk onto the lot. You tell him $300 and he immediately takes you over to the brand new 7- series BMW. Hey it’s an $80,000 car but.. $300/month right? And then when you go to sign the contract he happily points to the $300/month payments listed on page 2, skips the next 7 pages and hands you a pen to sign on page 10. Then when you get home you read the stupid contract only to find that you signed a car loan at 35% interest, you have to make payments for the next 47 years and the last one is a $50,000 balloon payment. (I’ve never met Scott and I’m sure he’s a nice guy but that’s how his articles come across to me.)
Heh. I wondered how to best describe the feeling I get every time I read one of Scott Santens articles. You nailed it perfectly.
