3 Reverse Mortgage Loan Questions to Consider

What is a Reverse Mortgage Loan?

A reverse mortgage loan is a loan designed to allow seniors to draw upon the equity in their homes. Seniors can select to receive the loan proceeds either by a lump sum payment, by monthly installments, as a line of credit or as a combination of a line of credit and monthly installments thus providing cash flow even after retirement. The reason this type of loan is called a “reverse mortgage loan” is because the loan proceeds are paid to the home owner.

Eventually the money paid to the homeowner is repaid with interest, however the loan generally does not become due until the borrower passes away, sells the home, no longer maintains the home as the primary residence or fails to pay property taxes, fails to pay homeowners insurance or otherwise fails to comply with the loan terms.
