Reverse Mortgage Program

The Reverse Mortgage program has become a larger part of my practice as a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist. While a reverse mortgage program is certainly not the only choice for seniors over 62, a reverse mortgage program is something to consider. Please take a moment to read my personal experience with a reverse mortgage program. Email any questions on a Reverse Mortgage Program. Reverse mortgage products offer benefits to seniors that a traditional mortgage can not and need to be a part of the mortgage planning process.

While I recognize that there are many websites claiming to be reverse mortgage "specialists" offering only the reverse mortgage program, I believe that is a disservice to my client. I will continue to offer traditional mortgage products as well as the reverse mortgage program as I believe that offering only one type of mortgage may not be the best answer to my client's situation. I prefer to look at the specifics of my client's situation and suggest the most appropriate solution. It may be a reverse mortgage programor it may not. Any mortgage should be a solution to a problem, not a product to be sold. That having been said, lets look at what a reverse mortgage really is.

Reverse mortgage programs are, at their most fundamental level, designed to allow seniors to maintain their independence with dignity. A reverse mortgage program allows you to use the equity in your home to maintain and even improve your lifestyle. A reverse mortgage program will NOT cause you to lose your home and I have used a reverse mortgage program many times to give seniors the ability to stay in their home when other alternatives have failed. Funds made available to you are not taxable and will not affect your Medicare eligibility. A reverse mortgage program can be an effective estate and financial planning tool that can be shown to increase the size of your estate as well as to reduce taxes on your estate. They do not require income, credit score, or health qualification but are based on your age and the equity in your home. More than anything else, a reverse mortgage program can give you peace of mind by allowing you to maintain your independence.

There are several loan types available to you and one may be a better choice depending on your specific set of circumstances

    Fixed rate Home Equity Conversion Mortgage. From the Federal Housing Administration (FHA)

    Adjustable rate Home Equity Conversion Mortgage. From the Federal Housing Administration (FHA)

    Home Keeper. This is from Fannie Mae

    Cash Account Advantage. From Financial Freedom

I offer a printed side by side comparison of each of them so you will be able to see which option best meets your needs. The benefits can vary significantly between them and we want to be sure you select the one that most closely meets your needs.
