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 — with a reverse mortgage, you don't. Your reverse mortgage balance, including accrued interest and fees, does not have to be repaid until you sell the home or permanently leave the home, as long as you meet your loan obligations (which includes keeping current with property-related taxes, insurance and upkeep).
  • With a reverse mortgage line of credit, the unused amount in your credit line actually grows over time — giving you access to more available funds. This means that the less you take out up front, the more will be available to you later.
  • 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.

Much appreciated blend of professionalism and cordialit Larry was a much appreciated blend of professionalism and cordiality. He was very thorough in the coverage of reverse mortgage issues and explained them with great clarity and patience. It was a good experience with a complicated matter.

Great Service Larry McAnarney was great to work with. The whole process was fast and easy to understand. I had to assist my mother with this process due to my father's ailing health. I know that my dad would be very happy with the choices we made and the service that was provided to us by Larry.

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.
