What is a reverse mortgage?

A reverse mortgage is a home-secured loan that’s exclusively for homeowners and homebuyers age 62 and older. It allows borrowers to convert some of the equity in their home into income-tax-free funds. (Not tax advice, consult a tax professional.) There are different loan products to choose from that offer you options on what interest rate you are charged, how much money you can access, and how you receive your payments. Unlike a regular “forward” mortgage or traditional home equity loan or home equity line of credit, there are no monthly principal and interest payments as long as at least one of the borrowers lives in the home as their primary residence. As with any mortgage, in order for the loan to remain in good standing, the borrower must also keep up with property-related taxes, insurance and upkeep.

Step by step help along the way Larry McAnarney was recommended to me. Fortunately, I was able to contact him to assist me in securing a reverse mortgage. He talked to me in terms that I could understand which made my steps possible. He politely and patiently answered my questions and proposed some himself. There was always an update from him on progress or what I should be expecting. To have a person that is comfortable to have a conversation with is important to me. I felt that any question or comment I had was going to be received in a friendly and business like manner. After all the paper work was finished and the reverse mortgage was secured, he still phoned to check if I had questions. I have already recommended him to people who are retirement age, or to their families, in case this could be of assistance to their parents. Obviously, I have a high opinion of my experience.

Reverse Mortgage Made Easy! From the start, Larry McAnarney was supportive, helpful, patient and explained everything in a way I could understand. He was always responsive to my calls and emails, and made sure that the process stayed on track. It was a real pleasure doing business with Larry, and I recommend him highly -- especially for taking the mysteries out of what could be a confusing and complex process, and just putting your mind at ease.
