Reverse mortgages are an excellent financial tool to enhance your senior lifestyle by maximizing one of your greatest resources to remain as independent as possible. With this low interest loan, you can use the tax free money that you have in the equity of your home to reduce bills, pay for medical expenses, take a nice vacation or just enjoy life.

You have earned it.

Through a U.S. Government Insured Program, originally created by AARP, a senior can obtain a loan for approximately 55%-75% of the appraised value of their home. The senior never has to repay the loan in their lifetime, as long as they live in the home. Then when the last surviving spouse dies, the money received (plus interest and closing costs) is repaid by the estate, usually from the sale of the house.

There are no credit score or income requirements for reverse mortgages. To be considered eligible for a reverse mortgage, homeowners must be at least 62 years of age or older. The home must be owned free and clear or any liens that exist, must be satisfied and eliminated with the reverse mortgage proceeds. If there is an existing mortgage balance, it can be paid off at the time the reverse mortgage loan closes.
