More than 700,000 USA households have taken advantage of the benefits of a Reverse Mortgage, which allows homeowners 62 or older to convert a portion of their home equity into tax-free cash without giving up title. Besides the cash, the Reverse Mortgage borrower will no longer have to pay monthly mortgage payments as long as they live in the house.
Recently, the AARP conducted a nationwide survey of Reverse Mortgage borrowers and found that 94% said that a Reverse Mortgage is having a positive effect on their retirement. The top three reasons why senior homeowners, in this economy, have been choosing to take out Reverse Mortgages are:
• They need money to pay medical and credit card bills..
• Polls show that 80% of seniors don’t want to leave their homes.
• The third reason is they want to have extra money to enjoy their retirement. A Reverse Mortgage satisfies those three wishes.
“There are hundreds of senior homeowners who need cash and would like a reliable resource to explain the pros and cons of a Reverse Mortgage. That’s exactly what our firm does. First and foremost, we are educators. Before any presentation is made, education takes place.”
Ross adds, “It’s important to inform the homeowner that Reverse Mortgage Borrowers will never lose their homes if they pay the taxes, insurance, association dues and maintain their home. The title always remains with the borrower. If a person doesn’t have the funds to do so, then a Reverse Mortgage is not right for them.”
Although a Reverse Mortgage offers many great benefits, the question comes down to: is a Reverse Mortgage right for you?
