How is a reverse mortgage different from a traditional home equity loan or line of credit?

A reverse mortgage offers certain advantages:

  • With a traditional home equity loan or home equity line of credit, you must make monthly principal and interest payments on the balance while you live in the home — whereas a reverse mortgage has a flexible repayment feature. You can pay as much or as little as you like each month toward principal and interest, or make no monthly loan payment at all. Your reverse mortgage balance, including accrued interest and fees, does not have to be repaid until you pass away or move out, as long as you meet your loan obligations (which includes keeping current with property-related taxes, insurance and upkeep).
  •  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 — giving you access to more available funds as time goes on. The growth rate is equal to the sum of the interest rate plus the annual mortgage insurance premium rate being charged on your loan.
  •  And the lender cannot “freeze” or reduce the line of credit, as long as you fulfill your loan obligations — so it will be there if and when you need it.

A Pleasure to Work With Larry was a pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and patient with our endless questions and phone calls. He kept us updated with the next steps both by email and phone as well as providing us with a packet of information which helped us understand the reverse mortgage process. We would certainly recommend him to anyone considering a reverse mortgage

Couldn't be Happier We recently closed our reverse mortgage with Larry McAnarney and couldn’t be happier. We don’t need the money, but Larry explained how we could set up a growing line of credit which could be used as possible future income, immediate liquidity, a long term care insurance hedge, and much more. We used this product as part of our retirement income planning strategy. Larry was very knowledgeable on all aspects of what we were trying to accomplish and very responsive to our needs and questions. He is highly recommended by us.
