More about Reverse Mortgages

A reverse mortgage allows homeowners 62 or older to convert part of the equity in their homes into tax free income without having to sell the home, give up title, or take on a new monthly mortgage payment. It is called a reverse mortgage because the flow of payments is reversed compared to a traditional mortgage. The lender makes payments to you, or provides a line of credit.

With a reverse mortgage, you retain title to your home and the loan is repaid when you permanently leave your home. There are many ways to use a reverse mortgage, below are only a few:

  • Pay off your forward mortgage to reduce your monthly expense
  • Maintain a standby cash reserve
  • Pay for short term or long term home care
  • Remodel your home to accommodate aging
  • Maintain a line of credit (that grows) for health emergencies
  • Delay collecting social security benefits
  • To purchase a home (yes, you read that right – you can use a reverse to buy a home too!)

Reverse mortgages have helped thousands of seniors stay in their homes with security, independence and dignity. Contact Melissa today to see if a reverse is right for you.
