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.

Larry Explains Everything Larry is the best, he explains everything clearly and didn't get frustrated if I asked too many questions. I would refer him to anyone who is considering a reverse mortgage. He was extremely easy to talk to and took the time to explain the answers to my questions
