“Reverse Mortgage In A Nutshell”

Reverse mortgage is NOT a wild eyed scheme, it is not a scam, it is not a loan of last resort. A HECM reverse mortgage allows homeowners 62 and older to borrow a portion of their home’s equity without ANY repayment due until the LAST of the homeowners no longer needs the home.  (See loan documents for complete details).

For whom is the reverse mortgage intended. Well, if you are like 1 out of 2 homeowners who cannot truly afford their retirement years, the reverse mortgage was designed to provide for you!  You and yours are the salt of the earth. You fought America’s wars. You bought a house, raised a family and worked your job. You had hoped you would now be at ease in your retirement. Instead you are one of the many, many retired homeowners who experience the constant stress of financial struggle and it’s not likely to get better. You are most certainly not alone. The world has moved on and left many an American retiree with an insufficient monthly income, without a company pension or without significant cash savings. ANYONE Who Actually Did The Physical Work, ANY former blue collar worker, former construction or factory hand, former administrative worker, truck driver, or lower level white collar worker etc. cannot afford to be retired. It’s that simple. For you, everyday expenses, as well as unanticipated costs such as healthcare not covered by Medicare or enjoying leisure activities, is becoming impossible to pay for. Especially for singles, minorities or women, it is so, so, common. For many seasoned citizens “On Golden Pond” has become “Skating on Thin Ice.

The reverse mortgage is a home equity loan. You are borrowing a certain amount of money using the equity in your home as collateral.  With a reverse mortgage, there is no monthly payment, no repayment is not required until the borrower passes away, chooses to sell the house or permanently moves out of the home. You can use all your available funding but the loan is not due until the last of the borrowers reach a triggering life event At that time, the home is sold to repay the loan plus accrued interest and other charges.  Any surplus from the sale beyond these costs is remitted to the borrower or his/her estate.

To qualify, you must be at least 62 years old, own your home outright of have sufficient equity in the home (usually 50 percent or greater), and live in the home as your primary residence. Additionally, the loan requires that you continue to pay all applicable property taxes, home insurance and regularly maintain the home.

As April 27, 2015 new rules insure that the HECM loan has income and credit criteria testing to improve lending practices, protect consumers by limitations on upfront draws, spousal protections to accommodate younger spouses and reduced fees.  A sounder reverse mortgage loan has resulted and set the stage for better and more comprehensive retirement income planning utilizing home equity as an income source.

The limit of the reverse mortgage amount depends upon the appraised  value of the home, the age of the youngest borrower, (the older you the greater a percentage of the home’s market value is available to you) and the available interest rates at time of the closing. Generally speaking 50-75% of the home’s appraised value is potentially available. 

Some considerations concerning reverse mortgages-both favorable and unfavorable, are:

Costs-Compared to most loans reverse mortgage closing costs are higher.  There are origination fees involved as well as monthly, and one time upfront, insurance premiums for the FHA insured loans.  However, these costs may be folded into the mortgager reducing out-of-pocket expenses. Lower or no-closing costs loans are available depending upon circumstance.

Keep in mind that depending how quickly you draw your available reverse mortgage funding you can burn through your home equity before you reach your older, more frail years.  That is, the years when you will most likely incur the greatest healthcare and frailcare costs.     Generally, a reverse mortgage only makes sense if you intend to stay in the home for a relativively long time-five years is a good benchmark.  If you are uncertain about the likelihood of staying in your home, whether from health concerns or other reasons, if you want to move in 2 years or so, you might want to consider other options. (See “Accessing Your Home’s Equity-Contrasting HELOC vs HECM page on this website )

Some seniors have found themselves requiring nursing home or long term care, which can terminate the residency requirement and bring the loan due when monetary concerns are the highest. But no one can predict the future. And reverse mortgage is excellent for financing frailcare where a couple is involved.  The community spouse can use the reverse  mortgage funding to provide for the frailcare her/his mate needs and that we all would want for our loved ones while at the same time preserving the couples “rainy day savings” for the future benefit of the community spouse.

HUD allows non-borrowing spouses to stay in the home if the couple was married at loan closing.

TAXES-As a loan reverse mortgages are not considered taxable income.  This is one of their primary appeals.  (Not tax advice-Consult a tax professional)

Another benefit of a reverse mortgage is that is does not effect your Social Security or Medicare. You must be careful handling the funding for it not to affect Medicaid or other low-income assistance programs. 

HEIRS-heirs will have the option to pay off the reverse mortgage and keep the home but no matter how the loan is constructed, the result is less of an estate to pass along.

For those seeking to purchase a home and are 62 and older Reverse Mortgage to PURCHASE is one of the most powerful ways to use this loan ( See page for Reverse Mortgage To Buy

To sum it up: If you are on a limited fixed income, do not have significant cash reserves and have significant home equity, it may be just the thing for you. With a reverse mortgage a senior homeowner can insure that they will be able to continue to live in their home in retirement, that they can “Age At Home”
