What is a Reverse Mortgage
A reverse mortgage is a federally insured mortgage available to homeowners who are 62 or older and have equity in their home to borrow against. Homeowners can convert their home equity into cash income with no monthly mortgage payments.
With a reverse mortgage, rather than the homeowner making payments to the lender, the lender makes payments to the homeowner. The homeowner decides how to receive these payments (lump sum, fixed monthly payment, or line of credit) and only pays interest on the proceeds received. Interest is rolled into the loan balance, which means the homeowner doesn’t pay anything upfront. With a reverse mortgage, the homeowner also keeps the title to the home, which makes it a great option for homeowners looking to refinance. Homeowners can also utilize a reverse mortgage to purchase a primary home.
A Smart Financial Decision for Homeowners 62 or Older
How Can a Reverse Mortgage Benefit You?
With a reverse mortgage, a homeowner doesn’t have to worry about making a mortgage payment. They have the ability to use cash from their home’s equity to pay for everyday expenses. This allows the homeowner to stay in their home as long as they wish. It is the only option to access home equity without selling their home for seniors who either don’t want the responsibility of making a monthly loan payment or can’t qualify for a home equity loan or refinance because of limited cash flow or poor credit.
Reverse mortgage payments are not taxable and won’t negatively affect Social Security/Medicare benefits. When the homeowner moves or dies, the money from the home’s sale goes to the lender to repay the reverse mortgage’s principal, interest, mortgage insurance, and fees. Any sale proceeds beyond what was borrowed go to the homeowner, if they are still living, or the homeowner’s estate, if the homeowner has died.
