I have been educating and answering questions for homeowners and their families about reverse mortgage programs since 1999.

For so many homeowners age 62 and older, a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) – also known as a reverse mortgage loan – could be a flexible and effective way to turn the equity you have in your home into funds you can use.

My experience is broad and deep in financial services dedicated to senior households. Today, as a Reverse Mortgage Specialist, my focus is on helping homeowners 62 and older, and their families, understand the reverse mortgage loan process from end to end.

Basic Reverse Mortgage Requirements

  • Borrowers must be age 62 years or older
  • Own their home and have enough equity to qualify
  • Occupy the home as primary residence
  • Receive counseling by an approved HUD/FHA counselor
  • The home must be in reasonably good repair

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.

 

Yes, refinancing is possible. This option may be to your advantage if your home increases in value, making more funds available.

Highly Impressed Upon my initial conversation with Larry I was highly impressed along with his credentials. As I continued to work along with him in obtaining all the documentation Larry requested, he came across some huge hurdles regarding my financial situation, but managed to resolve ALL  and was able to successfully acquire a reverse mortgage for myself. I cannot thank Mr. McAnarney enough for providing me with a comforting financial lifestyle.  Larry truly left me with a lasting and positive impression while accomplishing all that he could for me.  Emotionally now, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you are looking to take the next step to financial security and peace of mind, I highly would recommend the very ultimate and polished man in his field, Mr. Larry McAnarney.

Reverse Mortgage It was a wonderful experience dealing with Larry McAnarmy. He is a true gentleman in every since of the word. He was thorough with everything and answered all our questions. He never pressured us and was very patient. The whole process was a lot more involved than I thought it would be but it all worked out fine.

Larry Always Made Himself Available Larry McAnarney, our loan specialist, helped us navigate the loan process with his guidance and expertise. He provided options and explanations along the way, always with my mom’s best interest in mind. He personally presented our case to the Homeowner’s Association and acted as our liaison with them. Larry always made himself available to us, and communicated in a fast, effective, concise manner. We recommend Larry as a loan specialist because of our positive experience and for his knowledgeable ability and his willingness to serve you.
