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.

Professionalism & Cordiality Larry deserves 5 stars! Larry handled and explained the reverse mortgage questions promptly from the beginning with professionalism and cordiality. He was very thorough in the coverage of reverse mortgage issues and explained them with clarity and patience. We have relied on his feedback and documentation in order to make decisions.

Great experience Larry McAnarney was just super. He helped us stay organized and explained everything that needed to happen to complete the reverse mortgage. We really couldn't have done it without him. Like anything that's associated with the government, there are lots of hoops to jump through. But Larry was very patient with our questions and was easy to work with from start to finish. My wife was getting impatient with the process and said some things that would have caused most people to say good-bye, but Larry stayed calm and didn't put any pressure on us to make a final decision. He treated us with respect and wanted to be sure that WE were happy with what we were doing. I'd highly recommend Larry to anyone who is considering a second mortgage. It was a great experience.
