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

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.
