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.

Informative & Always Available Larry was very informative and always available when I had questions. I was very pleased with everything, including the closing. I have already recommended him to other people that might be interested. .

Knowledgeable and Trustworthy I would never want to get this loan from someone who only does it once in a while because it is out of the range of basic knowledge. I have never done this myself and am not familiar with the options and nuances of the reverse mortgage products. It is obvious that Larry is very experienced with this particular product and keeps in constant contact so you are never left making decisions on your own. He was recommended to me by a family member and I would be comfortable doing the same

Very Professional from Start to Finish!! With little or no knowledge about the details involved in a reverse mortgage, I set out to find a company I could TRUST to help me make the best decisions on my Moms behalf of receiving a source of a supplemental income. I was referred to Larry McAnarney by a friend. I contacted Larry and he replied to my email in a timely and VERY professional manner. After speaking with him on the phone with my list of questions I felt very confident that this was the person I would be dealing with from here on out. His response time to my calls and emails was beyond excellent when it comes to customer service. I would highly recommend Larry to anyone who is looking into the possibilities of a Reverse Mortgage. I would have given Larry a SIX star rating if I could.... but, a five star will have to do for now.
