What you need to know about reverse mortgages
What is a reverse mortgage?
A reverse mortgage is a home loan that offers flexible payment options to borrowers age 55+ *. You can use a reverse mortgage to purchase a new primary residence or refinance your home to improve cash flow, to make a large purchase, to consolidate debt, or to establish a line of credit.
What are my obligations?
When you have a reverse mortgage, you still own your home. You are responsible for the maintenance of your home, the property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, and HOA dues. When it comes time to repay your loan, you will pay the loan along with any interest and fees that have accrued**.
When do I repay the reverse mortgage?
When you reach a “Maturity Event”, your loan needs to be repaid. Maturity events include, but are not limited to, when you no longer live in the home as your primary residence, you sell the home, you pass away.
What is my first step?
