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.

A pleasant experience Larry McAnarney was very professional yet warm in his dealing with both my wife and me. Our experience during the entire process was a pleasant one.

Easy Process and Friendly Service Larry was great to work with. He guided me through the process and was very specific about the information I needed to provide so that I was prepared each time we met. He came to my home for all of our meetings and that was very convenient for me. Larry was aware that I needed to get my loan closed as soon as possible and he made sure the underwriters were aware of that. When it was time for me to close, I asked Larry to be there since I trusted him and wanted his support. He was there as promised. Closing was easy and straighforward and everything went the way I expected. I am very pleased with Larry and would recommend them highly.

Very Thoughtful and Professional Larry is a very thoughtful and professional person. He carefully and with great patience took me through the process and gained my respect and trust. Always available and always following up, without the sales push and aggressiveness of other companies I talked with. Great person to work with and I highly recommend him
