A reverse mortgage is a loan available for seniors age 62 years or older that converts your home's equity into cash. Instead of worrying about mortgages payments every month, the homeowner receives payments from a lender. The borrower is then only responsible for staying up to date on real estate taxes, homeowner's insurance, and maintenance. This type of loan allows the borrower to increase their monthly income and there are no limitations on types of purchases. The loan balance does not have to be repaid until the home is no longer the borrower's primary residence or the borrower fails to stay current on their remaining responsibilities.
With a reverse mortgage you are able to choose how you would like to receive payments. Options include a single disbursement, monthly payments, a line of credit or a combination of monthly payments and a line of credit. You can use the loan to pay for things like healthcare, home repairs, or simply supplement retirement income for everyday life.

Once everything has been satisfactorily documented, the underwriter will issue a final approval and a notary will meet with you to witness your signing of the closing documents.
