Did you know there’s a financing option specifically for homebuyers who are age 62 and older, which can help you get the funds you need to buy the home you want?
With H4P, you can purchase a home by combining a one-time investment of your own funds (down payment) with loan proceeds from a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) to complete the transaction. As with a traditional “forward”mortgage, the home you are purchasing secures the loan.
However, unlike a traditional mortgage, monthly mortgage payments are optional, which can help increase your cash flow. You own the home as long as you live in it. The loan does not have to be repaid until you sell the home or no longer live there as your primary residence. In order for the loan to remain in good standing, you must meet certain home ownership obligations — which include maintaining the property, and keeping current with property-related taxes and insurance payments.
The cash required (down payment) typically ranges from 29% to 65%, depending on your age. (The older you are, the more reverse mortgage proceeds you can receive.) This down payment range assumes closing costs will be financed into the loan.

Navigating Reverse Mortgages Made Easy Navigating the world of reverse mortgages was made easier with the help of Larry McAnarney. Larry answered his phone and returned all phone calls when he was unable to answer the phone. I contacted Larry to enlist his help with my sister and her husband to obtain a Reverse Mortgage. He met with them at their home, patiently answering all their questions as they sought to understand a reverse mortgage and helped them to understand all the necessary documents needed to secure the loan. My brother-in-law is unable to move about without a great deal of assistance and Larry arranged to close the loan at their home. I would recommend Larry to anyone who found themselves in need of a reverse mortgage.

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.
