Builder HECM for Purchase Program

Builders:

Here’s a smart home financing option that can help you sell more homes and upgrades

Let me show you how our Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for Purchase home financing program can help you sell more homes, by making it easier for people age 62 and older to buy the home they desire.

  •  It can help you attract and capture a brand new — and rapidly growing — market of home buyers.Did you know that 22% of today’s home buyers are age 62 and older, according to a recent study by the National Association of Realtors®, and that number is expected to grow over the next decade?
  •  More shoppers can become buyers, because it allows them to keep more of their cash than they could with a conventional mortgage or an all-cash purchase.
  •  Buyers can get additional spending power for upgrades or to purchase a higher-end home (e.g., pick premium lot, more square footage, etc.)

How it works:

Buyers can purchase a home by combining a one-time investment of their own funds (a down payment of typically about 45% to 62%, depending on borrower age) with loan proceeds from a HECM. This down payment range assumes closing costs will be financed into the loan.

As with a traditional “forward” mortgage, the home they purchase secures the loan. But unlike a traditional mortgage, monthly mortgage payments are optional while they own and live in the home as their primary residence — making buying a new home even more attractive.

As with any home-secured loan, the borrower must meet their loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, insurance, maintenance, and any homeowners association fees.

Comparing three ways to purchase a new home:

 

 
 
All Cash
 
Traditional Mortgage
 
HECM for Purchase
Why?
  •  Buyer owns the home free and clear
  •  Option to make a minimum down payment and limit upfront investment
  •  Builds equity as they pay down the loan
  •  Flexible repayment feature: Monthly principal and interest payments are optional*
  •  Gives the buyer the flexibility to get the home they really want
  •  Allows them to keep more assets to use as they wish
Why
Not?
  •  Ties up a large portion of their money
  •  Monthly mortgage payments diminish the buyer’s cash flow
  •  The buyer’s equity in the home decreases if principal and interest payments are deferred, as the loan balance increases over time due to interest
  •  Requires a larger down payment than the traditional mortgage option

 

*  As with any home-secured loan, the borrower must meet their loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, insurance, maintenance, and any homeowners association fees. A HECM is a home-secured loan that must be repaid upon default or a maturity event, such as when the home is sold, all homeowners have passed away, or the last surviving borrower no longer lives there as their primary residence.

Larry Was Outstanding & Patient Larry was outstanding and patient in his help. Over the phone, he took me page by page in filling out the forms, a task that otherwise would have been daunting. He answered all my questions with kindness and courtesy. He made the reverse mortgage happen. I could not have done it without his help. He is the best!

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
