What is a reverse mortgage?

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:

  • A monthly payment will supplement your income each month.
  • A lump sum will provide your available funds at once, subject to initial disbursement limits.
  • A line of credit will allow you to withdraw cash as you need it.
  • Any combination of the above will give you the added value of flexibility to meet your personal financial requirements.

HIGHLY Recommend Larry I had the pleasure of working with Larry McAnarney for a reverse mortgage for my mother. My mom wanted to stay in her home for her senior years and needed to do the reverse mortgage for the 24/7 in home care that was needed. I received Larry's name and contact information from a small-town bank near my mom's house. Knowing nothing about reverse mortgages, I knew I needed an expert and someone that would be patient, helpful, and willing to share all his knowledge. I found all of that, and more, in Larry. Every phone conversation, zoom call, and email from Larry was filled with valuable information that helped me, my mom, and my siblings through the entire reverse mortgage process. I felt like he was "holding my hand" as the process moved forward and that he always had my mom's best interests in mind. Larry is a very caring and compassionate person, and I could genuinely feel his desire to truly help our family. I never felt afraid, unsure, or concerned. Larry was always available to talk or text and he quickly replied to e-mails (even when I sent them in the middle of the night) The paperwork and forms he provided were very organized and detailed and I appreciated that Larry took the time to carefully explain all of the information. I have nothing but positive things to say about Larry. When the mortgage was approved and closed, I remember thinking "I'm going to miss Larry." Good people like Larry are hard to find.

Shepherded me Through the Process In this day and age when it seems that customer service is a lost art, Larry stands out as one of the best. He shepherded me through this entire process and was very kind and extremely responsive. A reverse mortgage is a big decision - especially when you are by yourself, but it was lot easier because of Larry McAnarney
