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

Patiently Helped Me Through the Process If you are looking for a mortgage loan specialist who is exceptional look no further because Larry McAnarney is your man! I feel so blessed that I found him to help me refinance my house. I needed someone who would kindly, willingly, and patiently help me through the process. I had spent a considerable amount of time calling lenders near where I lived in Virginia and didn't feel comfortable with any of them. Frustrated, I went online and the very first website that came up was Larry's company. I searched the reviews and was highly impressed so I called and Larry answered. I told him what I needed, he listened patiently and explained what he could do for me. That phone call was the first, but not the last of many phone calls over a number of months because my refinance was not an easy one by any means mainly due to problems with my HOA. Larry worked diligently with my HOA to help untangle the issues we were dealing with when I seemed to get nowhere with them. I believe today that I would never have finally gotten my refinance at all if not for Larry's ability to never give up on me and my situation until it was resolved. He always answered my emails and phone calls promptly and I truly appreciated that. I asked lots of questions and he made sure he answered them all to my satisfaction. I feel it is becoming rarer today to find honest, helpful men like Larry. I truly appreciate and feel fortunate that he appeared in my life to help me when he did
