Reverse Mortgage Loans

Get Low Rates on a Reverse Mortgage

The Government Insured Reverse Mortgage is the perfect loan for homeowners and homebuyers 62 years and older who want to secure their financial future and enjoy a comfortable retirement.

With a traditional mortgage, you are required to pay back the loan in monthly installments. A Reverse Mortgage allows you the freedom to spend your retirement without ever having to worry about making a monthly mortgage payment. The loan works by allowing you to borrow against the value of the home and defer mortgage payments until after the last remaining occupant has moved out or passed away. The loan cannot be outlived and there will be no burden to your loved ones.

A Reverse Mortgage is a non-recourse loan, which means the cash value of your home is the only instrument that can be used to repay the loan. Investments, second homes, cars, and other valuable possessions cannot be taken from the estate to pay off the Reverse Mortgage. Best of all, with a Reverse Mortgage, you will maintain ownership of the home and never have to make a mortgage payment. 

Buy a Home with a Reverse Mortgage
Many people approaching retirement wish to downsize to a smaller home or move to a new location and need a purchase home loan. You can purchase your retirement home through a combination of personal funds – such as savings, proceeds from the sale of your old home, or gifts from family members - and the loan proceeds from a Reverse Mortgage.  With a Reverse Mortgage, you won’t have to shell out the full monetary value of your new home, and you won’t have to make a monthly payment as long as you reside in the home.

Own your home? Why not rent it out or sell it -- and really improve your cash flow and savings with investment property loans. Then, purchase your new home, with no mortgage payment.
