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.

Initially we were a bit hesitant and unsure Initially, my husband and I were a bit hesitant and unsure of seeking a reverse mortgage. Luckily, we were referred to Larry McAnarney by our finacial advisor and he explained in detail the whole concept. Larry was very professional and answered all our questions during the process. We would not hesitate to refer anyone to use Larry as their reverse mortgage consultant.
