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.
Initially we were a bit hesitant and unsure Initially, my husband and I were a bit hesitant and unsure of seeking a reverse mortgage. Luckily, we were referred to Larry McAnarney by our finacial advisor and he explained in detail the whole concept. Larry was very professional and answered all our questions during the process. We would not hesitate to refer anyone to use Larry as their reverse mortgage consultant.

Thank You, Larry! Larry McAnarney is our reverse mortgage loan specialist. He did an excellent job of explaining the reverse mortgage programs, the process, requirements, how the monies would be accessed if approved. He followed up with me multiple times before I made the decision to proceed which I really appreciated. He assisted me in wading through all of the requirements in the application process. He was always available for a question either by email or phone. He was always encouraging and optimistic about our chances for success. He was helpful and very clear as to all the documents I needed to prepare and always allowed me a reasonable amount of time to comply. As our house is in trust there were further "hoops to jump through." Larry truly went above and beyond the call of duty on our behalf with the underwriters. I have no doubt that his extra hard work won the approval of our reverse mortgage. I couldn't recommend him more highly. He has my thanks!
