Mark Zuckerberg, the multi-billionaire co-founder of Facebook, recently took out an adjustable mortgage on his house. But this article wisely cautions that adjustable rate mortgages are not usually a good idea. In Zuckerberg’s case, the idea might make sense because he can invest the money in more profitable ways. Then again, most of us don’t have a $15-20 billion net worth to invest. But like Zuckerberg probably did around the Facebook IPO and his marriage the next day, you should visit your estate planning lawyer to be sure your estate plan is optimized to provide for your family and continue your legacy in the community. If you’ve gotten married, divorced, had children, or had other major life changes happening lately (or coming on the horizon in the next few months), you owe it to yourself and your family to be sure your estate plan is tailored to meet your needs.
