What is a Reverse Mortgage?
A reverse mortgage is a unique loan product that allows homeowners, ages 62 and older, to convert a portion of their home equity into cash. While the senior remains in their home, there are no required mortgage payments. Conversely, the lender makes payments to the senior! The cash can be used for monthly living expenses, medical costs, or to simply add to a nest egg. The senior is still responsible for taxes, insurance, home maintenance and any homeowners’ association fees, but that’s it.
