Seniors looking for extra Cash for living, Healthcare needs, and Education

Imagine living in your home without a traditional mortgage payment, or enjoying monthly loan proceeds from the years you've invested in your home. A reverse mortgage is a unique tool designed for seniors 62 and older. You enjoy access to part of the equity in your home and the freedom and comfort of the home you've known for so many years. It's your home, now you can put it to work for you.

Reverse mortgage borrowers retain ownership and title to their home. It's yours just as it was before, but now you can benefit from the equity that's been building in your home for years. In addition, HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage) reverse mortgage loans give you the peace of mind of a government guaranteed FHA-insured loan where you will never owe more than the home is worth in most cases. In order to retain the home when the reverse mortgage becomes due and payable, the borrower(s) or heirs must pay the entire loan balance and in some cases the payoff after the loan is due may be greater the value of the borrower’s home.

You can get a reverse mortgage on your primary residence and no repayment is due until the home is sold, the last borrower passes away or permanently leaves the home. Borrowers must keep the home in good condition, pay property taxes and keep homeowner's insurance coverage to avoid the loan becoming due and payable.

As a protection all those seeking a reverse mortgage are required to obtain counseling (from an independent HUD-approved third party counselor) prior to incurring any costs associated with the loan.While proceeds from a reverse mortgage are not subject to personal income taxation, borrowers should seek tax advice on how proceeds may affect government needs-based programs such as Medicaid and Medi-Cal.
