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.

Wonderful Experience I want to join the chorus of those who had a wonderful experience working with Larry. I was pretty sure that a reverse mortgage was the right path for my wife and myself to take at this stage of our lives, but she was somewhat reluctant and unsure. Larry was able to gain her confidence, as well as my own, in the manner of his presentation of just the facts - and his genuinely kind disposition. He was, as well, a very effective ally in dealing with the title company over a matter which was quite important to us. As a recently retired sales rep myself, I was most impressed by dealing with someone who truly puts the customer first.

Pleasure Working with Larry It was a pleasure working with Larry. He explained everything just as it worked out from start to finish. I wish I had more school teachers that could explain things and work with me as well as he did. I would definitely recommend him to anyone interested a reverse mortgage. 5 stars plus
