Reverse mortgages (also referred to as "home equity conversion loans") give older homeowners the ability to benefit from their built-up equity without selling their home. Deciding how you'd prefer to be paid: by a monthly payment, a line of credit, or a lump sum, you may take out a loan amount determined by your equity. Paying back your loan is not necessary until the time the borrower sells the home, moves (such as to a care facility) or passes away. You or your estate representative must repay the reverse mortgage loan, interest , and other finance fees at the time your property is sold, or you can no longer use it as your primary residence.
Are you Eligible?
Generally, reverse mortgages require you be at least sixty-two years of age, have a small or zero balance owed against the home and maintain the house as your main residence.
Reverse mortgages can be advantageous for retired homeowners or those who are no longer working but need to add to their limited income. Social Security and Medicare benefits can not be affected; and the funds are not taxable. Reverse Mortgages can have adjustable or fixed interest rates. The lender cannot take away your property if you live past the loan term nor can you be required to sell your residence to pay off your loan even when the loan balance grows to exceed property value.
