What is a reverse mortgage?

A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, or HECM, is a flexible financial product designed for homeowners aged 62 and older. The loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) so that borrowers will not owe more than the value of the home at maturity. With a HECM, also known as a reverse mortgage, you can convert some of the equity in your home into cash to meet financial goals, such as supplementing retirement income, buying a new home, maintaining a quality lifestyle, or preparing for a more secure and rewarding financial future.

All that happens all without giving up ownership or control of your home and without having to make monthly mortgage payments. Of course, as homeowners, you are responsible for occupying the home as your primary residence, keeping up with property maintenance, and staying current on paying property taxes, required insurance and any homeowners’ fees.

Instead of repaying the loan in monthly installments, you or your estate repay the principal, accrued fees and interest when you no longer live in the home.

When it comes to getting your payment, you determine how you’d like to receive your funds based on your individual financial needs and objectives. For example:

  • A monthly payment will supplement your income each month.
  • A lump sum will provide your available funds at once, subject to initial disbursement limits.
  • A line of credit will allow you to withdraw cash as you need it.
  • Any combination of the above will give you the added value of flexibility to meet your personal financial requirements.

Patiently Helped Me Through the Process If you are looking for a mortgage loan specialist who is exceptional look no further because Larry McAnarney is your man! I feel so blessed that I found him to help me refinance my house. I needed someone who would kindly, willingly, and patiently help me through the process. I had spent a considerable amount of time calling lenders near where I lived in Virginia and didn't feel comfortable with any of them. Frustrated, I went online and the very first website that came up was Larry's company. I searched the reviews and was highly impressed so I called and Larry answered. I told him what I needed, he listened patiently and explained what he could do for me. That phone call was the first, but not the last of many phone calls over a number of months because my refinance was not an easy one by any means mainly due to problems with my HOA. Larry worked diligently with my HOA to help untangle the issues we were dealing with when I seemed to get nowhere with them. I believe today that I would never have finally gotten my refinance at all if not for Larry's ability to never give up on me and my situation until it was resolved. He always answered my emails and phone calls promptly and I truly appreciated that. I asked lots of questions and he made sure he answered them all to my satisfaction. I feel it is becoming rarer today to find honest, helpful men like Larry. I truly appreciate and feel fortunate that he appeared in my life to help me when he did

The Customer Comes First Her I have been very happy with all of my dealings with Larry McAnarney. He has the drive needed to handle all the details in a timely manner but explain the steps and concepts in an easy to understand and gentle, laid back manner. Never a hard sell with Larry. With a plan to close the transaction before the first of the month, Larry kept the momentum going until all was settled with four days to spare. He was available for questions and advice at all times which was very beneficial because of the timetable involved. Professional and engaging. Win-Win-Win.
