Take Advantage of Your Home Equity with Our Reverse Mortgage Program
You worked hard for your home. Now, your home can return the favor through a reverse mortgage program.
This service, typically offered by reverse mortgage brokers, enables you to get the funds you need to achieve short-term financial goals, have peace of mind during your golden years, and live a more comfortable life.
An Overview of the Reverse Mortgage
A reverse mortgage also called a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), allows you to use the equity of your home as cash. Reverse mortgage programs provide financial support for low-income seniors. These homeowners can use the funds from the program to pay debts and taxes, home repairs or renovations, medical bills, and everyday expenses.
Reverse Mortgage Features
The following features are present in a reverse mortgage:
Various Options to Receive Money – You can obtain the funds in multiple ways, namely as a lump sum, a term payment, a tenure payment, or a line of credit.
Tax-Free Funds – Money coming from a reverse mortgage is typically tax-free.**
Non-Recourse Loan – A reverse mortgage is a non-recourse loan, which means your heirs will not be liable to sell the house if it goes for less than the balance of the loan.
Reverse Mortgage Requirements
The borrower must be at least 62 years of age.
Have the financial ability to pay ongoing property expenses including taxes and insurance.
Occupy the property as your primary residence.
Own the property outright or have a small mortgage balance.
Not be delinquent on any Federal debt.
Advantages of Getting a Reverse Mortgage
Enjoy the following benefits when you get a reverse mortgage:
Retention of Homeownership - As long as you pay the homeowner’s insurance and property taxes and comply with the terms of the loan, you can maintain ownership of your home
No Required Monthly Mortgage Payment - You won’t need to make any regular payments in a reverse mortgage. You receive funds from your reverse mortgage lender instead.*
Protection from a Housing Market Decline - The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insures the reverse mortgage loan. If the loan ends up amounting to more than the home’s value when sold, the government insurance will take care of the difference.
