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.

Very Comfortable with my Decision I was a little nervous when I decided I wanted to look into a reverse mortgage. Had no idea where to begin, so went to a bank and they gave me Larry McAnarney's name. Thank goodness they did! Larry was absolutely wonderful. He was polite, answered all my questions and walked me through the process and was very patient with my questions. I then spoke with a reverse mortgage counselor who was also wonderful. She knew her business, took her time with me, answered all my questions and advised me. I was no longer nervous. I also had a notary who came and closed the reverse mortgage loan and he was very nice, took his time and walked me through the closing. All three people were very knowledgeable about reverse mortgages, both pros and cons, and I felt very comfortable with my final decision to go through the process. The entire process was not uncomfortable for me because all three had taken the time I needed for me to feel comfortable with my decision. I was very happy with the outcome and for the patience of all three individuals. Yes, I would recommend Larry McAnarney to anyone interested in a reverse mortgage.

Exceptional Mortgage Loan Specialist This is my 3rd reverse mortgage due to real estate values increasing in the area. The entire process was done via phone and email...mostly email. Larry McAnarney was very easy to work with, very professional, very responsive with answers to questions re: the program and/or documents. His answers were short, precise, and clear. The remote process of this reverse mortgage was every bit as easy as the previous loans that were done face to face. I am not sure how the process could have been any easier or smoother. Thank You!!
