What is a Reverse Mortgage?
Reverse Mortgage loans are a way for older homeowners to convert a portion of their home’s equity into tax-free cash, without having to sell or move. Insured by the FHA, Reverse Mortgages allow homeowners who are 62 or older to borrow against the equity of their homes.
Here’s how it works:
- Qualifying homeowners can choose to receive tax-free payments from Reverse Mortgage lenders either on a monthly basis, in a lump sum, as a line of credit or any combination of the above.
- No monthly payments are required while a borrower lives in the home.
- Social Security and Medicare benefits are not affected.
- Title to the home remains in the home owners names.* THE BANK DOES NOT OWN THE HOME. Homeowners stay in their home as long as they are able or want to.*
- Reverse Mortgages are paid back only when the last borrower leaves the home, typically through the sale of the home by the heirs.*
- When the loan is paid in full, all remaining equity associated with the property will be distributed to your heirs.
- Once the Reverse Mortgage closes, proceeds do not change due to negative economic reasons such as market downturn.
Keep in mind:
Reverse mortgage borrowers continue to own their homes.* Because there are no monthly loan payments due, the amount owed grows over time. That means that the amount and the remaining equity in the home could decrease depending on the real estate market in Arizona.
Borrowers must continue to pay homeowner’s insurance and property taxes during the loan period. It is also the borrower’s responsibility to keep up with repairs.
*The owner(s) retain title to the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage until the person sells or transfers the property and is therefore responsible for paying property taxes, insurance, maintenance and related taxes. Failing to pay these amounts or failure to maintain the condition of your property may cause the reverse mortgage loan to become due immediately.
This will probably be the only time in your life you take advantage of the Reverse Mortgage program, but for hundreds homeowners I have helped in the past, this is what I know!
