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

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.
