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.

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.
