— Slide 10: The BLOC is a Better Financing Option —
You can use your BLOC to finance any financial need

What We Have Learned

As demonstrated in the previous illustration, you paid off the car within 1 year. All further payments from your child is now excess income. You will be earning the interest instead of the bank.

Of course, this is a simple illustration. Factors may lesson the amount of discretionary income you may have from month-to-month.

What has been demonstrated is the power of the BLOC program.

You could use the BLOC to finance your child's education, put a down payment on a vacation home, renovate your existing home, start a family business, and finance other family needs. See our home equity samples.

    assume you closed on the following mortgage loan four years ago to the month:

    mortgage loan amount: $300,000
    term: 30 years
    APR: 6.00%

    you will then use your BLOC to make an additional payment of $5,000 on the 48th month of your mortgage repayment plan.

    Your BLOC will look like this:
