I have been educating and answering questions for homeowners and their families about reverse mortgage programs since 1999.
For so many homeowners age 62 and older, a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) – also known as a reverse mortgage loan – could be a flexible and effective way to turn the equity you have in your home into funds you can use.
My experience is broad and deep in financial services dedicated to senior households. Today, as a Reverse Mortgage Specialist, my focus is on helping homeowners 62 and older, and their families, understand the reverse mortgage loan process from end to end.

Basic Reverse Mortgage Requirements
A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, or HECM, is a flexible financial product designed for homeowners aged 62 and older. The loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) so that borrowers will not owe more than the value of the home at maturity. With a HECM, also known as a reverse mortgage, you can convert some of the equity in your home into cash to meet financial goals, such as supplementing retirement income, buying a new home, maintaining a quality lifestyle, or preparing for a more secure and rewarding financial future.
All that happens all without giving up ownership or control of your home and without having to make monthly mortgage payments. Of course, as homeowners, you are responsible for occupying the home as your primary residence, keeping up with property maintenance, and staying current on paying property taxes, required insurance and any homeowners’ fees.
Instead of repaying the loan in monthly installments, you or your estate repay the principal, accrued fees and interest when you no longer live in the home.
When it comes to getting your payment, you determine how you’d like to receive your funds based on your individual financial needs and objectives. For example:
Yes, refinancing is possible. This option may be to your advantage if your home increases in value, making more funds available.Read More Back to Top

Professional, Patient, Helpful, and Knowledgeable We couldn't have asked for a more professional, patient, helpful and knowledgeable person like Larry McAnarney. I had the privilege of working with Larry, to help a dear friend with her reverse mortgage. Larry was thorough with the whole process, never pushy and always available when we reached out with questions or needed any kind of assistance. He followed up with us on every procedure and was always very considerate about the need at hand. The "mortgage world" needs more people like Larry McAnarney... then things wouldn't be as complicated or as difficult as we perceive them to be. Thank you Larry, you definitely get way more than just 5 stars!!!
