Is a Reverse Mortgage right for you?

If you have been considering a Reverse Mortgage, there are several advantages to this unique loan program. For homeowners 62 and older, accessing the equity in their home without a monthly payment and increasing their monthly cash flow is by far the biggest benefit of the program.

As home values have appreciated over the years, seniors have struggled to keep up with rising costs of living. A Reverse Mortgage allows many seniors to access additional income from their home’s equity, tax free. Most importantly, there are no mortgage payments to be made for as long as the homeowner lives there.
