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.

Larry Explained Everything Larry did a great job of explaining and guiding us through a reverse mortgage. Much more complicated than we had thought. You need a lot of help and Larry was there to provide it.

Larry Knows His Business Larry did a great job with follow up when I needed questions answered. Still a little in the fog about how to pull more funds from my account, if I have a need down the road.

Recommended by My Financial Planner Larry was sooo patient and guided me through the whole process. My circumstances were more complicated than usual and when I would get frustrated Larry spoke to me in a calming voice and explained that it was part of the process of obtaining approval. Thank you Larry
