No, just a more expensive thing, in my experience.

Yes, some times, for some lenders, more perceived risk means reward/price goes up accordingly. IMHO sometime they believe they have a captive audience. Balance sheet lenders offer these to take care of clients long term and a few have small loan adjusters. Sometimes offset by the discount for assets at that level. Some just see the irony of; in order to lend on assets you have to make the client demonstrate they are actually depleting those assets! Or the silliness in; if a client has amassed $10MM and can pay for the house with cash, jacking up the price on a $1MM mortgage when there is really no "incremental" risk.
