The Baby Boom generation represents an important opportunity for real estate professionals to serve a rapidly growing market of people who are motivated to sell their current homes and buy a different one for retirement — one that’s “right-sized,” and may be closer to friends and/or family.
Our Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for Purchase home financing solution can make it easier for people age 62 and older to buy a home that better fits their retirement needs and wants.
How it works: Buyers can purchase a home by combining a one-time investment of their own funds (a down payment of typically about 45% to 62%, depending on borrower age) with loan proceeds from a HECM. (This down payment range assumes closing costs will be financed into the loan.) As with a traditional “forward” mortgage, the home they purchase secures the loan. But unlike a traditional mortgage, monthly mortgage payments are optional while they own and live in the home as their primary residence — making buying a new home even more attractive.
As with any home-secured loan, the borrower must meet their loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, insurance, maintenance, and any homeowners association fees.
To learn more about how this powerful financing option can be a key ingredient in helping more home shoppers become buyers, or to discuss a marketing strategy for this unique audience, please contact me.

Personal comfort and re-assurance My representative was Larry McAnarny, who was very concerned that I understood everything necessary to apply for a reverse mortgage. He was there for me the whole step of the way to advise me or help me make a decision. Larry gave me the good and bad specifics and I had to make all the decisions. Regardless of how unimportant I thought my questions were, or how often I contacted,Larry, he assured me that they were valid, and gave me his time to clarify and answer my questions. I am happy and feel very secure and comfortable with the counseling I received I HIGHLY recommend Larry with 10+ rating from me.
