Reverse Mortgage: Do Your Homework before Committing
Tapping home equity doesn’t necessarily require relocating. A reverse mortgage may be a solution if you have significant home equity and a desire to stay in your existing home. With a reverse mortgage, you receive a source of income by borrowing against your home’s equity. Payouts are tax free and may be taken as a lump sum, a line of credit, or an annuity-like payment schedule.
