Why Financial Advisors are Reconsidering Reverse Mortgages

A reverse mortgage could help your clients age 62 and older to effectively leverage an important retirement asset: home equity. Thanks to recent academic research that demonstrates the value of FHA-insured* Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs), reverse mortgages are gaining acceptance as a valuable and effective tool to help satisfy the challenges of meeting retirement goals for decades.

Design Solutions for Your Clients

With its flexible payment options, a reverse mortgage can give borrowers more financial control and can serve as an excellent risk management tool, while keeping productive assets under your management — helping their portfolios last longer. As a tax-efficient strategy, clients can use a reverse mortgage to reduce their income taxes1 by lowering their withdrawals from qualified accounts. Other uses include refinancing aconventional mortgage with a HECM, so as to eliminate a client's monthly principal and interest payment. 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. Or perhaps using a HECM to finance the purchase of a home, thereby reducing the amount of cash older clients have to "put down" when downsizing.

HECM Credit Line: A Unique Safety Net Offering a Growth Feature and Flexible Repayment

Clients can establish a HECM credit line and draw on it as needed for future expenses, such as health care costs. A unique feature of the HECM credit line is the amount available to clients will grow2monthly, independent of any change in home value. This feature provides additional available cash in future years that may prove valuable as clients savings are depleted.

If part of your loan is held in a line of credit upon which you may draw, then the unused portion of the line of credit will grow in size each month. The growth rate is equal to the sum of the interest rate plus the annual mortgage insurance premium rate being charged on your loan.

Worked well for us! My wife and I had been discussing reverse mortgage for some time. We had heard all the pros and cons of doing this type of mortgage and the pros won out. We have a house that was built in 1976 and we have been in it since 1991. We have really done no updates on it and it was really needing some remodeling. We were just not able to afford all the stuff that it needed. We could not find anyone in our area that did reverse mortgage so I got on the internet and did some searches. A few days later I got a call from Larry McAnarney. I told Larry that I came from the "old school" and was use to doing business face to face, but since he was in Illinois and we were in Texas it made it a little difficult. However, to make a long story short, Larry explained everything to our satisfaction and we started the process. We had to go to a counseling session so that we understood the process. After that it was pretty simple. Thanks to Larry McAnarney.

Reverse Mortgage Purchase Program Larry was a great help in helping my mother purchase her new home using the reverse mortgage purchase program. Part of my mother's income comes from French pensions and needed additional verification/proof which was not easy - but Larry was readily available to help simplify the process and explain the details. I would definitely recommend using Larry for anyone looking into getting a reverse mortgage. He is straightforward and trustworthy. Thanks again!

Totally Committed to Service and the Custome Going through the hoops for a reverse mortgage was a task. I found Larry McAnarney and he was beyond professional in his willingness to cover every nuance, foresee any possible problems, and SUPER follow through after approval. I can't reommend this service highly enough.
