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.

Nervous in the Beginning Larry was very knowledgeable about the processing of the reverse mortgage. He answered all my questions in a way that I could understand each step of the process. I was nervous in the beginning but with Larry helping me step by step in understanding the process, I became very much at ease. I would be more than happy to recommend others who would want to do a reverse mortgage. Again, thank you Larry.

Fast and Painless Process I still can’t believe how fast and painless the process was. During the reverse mortgage process Larry was easy to work with. He patiently responded to every question I asked him, day or night. Larry is very knowledgeable of the process and made it easy for us to understand. We always felt comfortable during the process and he made us feel like we were his only client. From initiation to closing we were completed in six weeks. We highly recommend Larry for reverse mortgage needs.
