Improve Your Monthly Cash Flow with a Reverse Mortgage
Reverse mortgages allow you to convert your home equity into cash. They're quite similar to regular mortgages when purchasing a property but in reverse. With regular mortgages you receive money upfront to purchase a property and repay the loan every month. The difference with reverse mortgages is that you already own the home and they allow you to withdraw equity from your home, converting it to cash in the form of a monthly payment or lump sum.
You can receive money without many of the traditional mortgage qualifications as your income and assets is not taken into account when qualifying for the reverse mortgage. This makes them easier to obtain.
No, the bank never owns your home during the loan term of a reverse mortgage. You still hold the title to your property. Because you still own your home, you are still responsible for taxes, insurance, and home maintenance.
Your mortgage is due after death but heirs have multiple options. Heirs can keep the property by paying off the loan balance. They can also sell the property and are able to keep any of the proceeds of the sale after the reverse mortgage is paid. Lastly, the heirs can walk away if the property has little equity or the loan amount is higher than the value of the home.
There is no need to repay the loan until all borrowers cease to live at the property, pass away, or fail to meet loan terms (For Example: Failing to pay homeowner’s insurance).
