This rate option will give you access to more cash proceeds over the life of the loan than any other product option available. You will notice that there
is a line of credit available after 12 months which will allow you to receive the most money possible in the first 12 months. If your number one goal with
the Reverse Mortgage is to get your hands on as much money as possible this is the option for you.
If your priority is to preserve as much equity in your home while still leaving access to a line of credit to have in case of an emergency this is the product
you would want to choose. If you review the amortization schedule for this product, you will see that over the years your outstanding loan balance with
this selection will be lower than the other product options.
With this product option you will keep your closing costs as low as possible in order to establish your Reverse Mortgage. If you are most concerned
with the costs to set up the loan and less concerned with the amount of proceeds you will receive, this is the product I would recommend for you.
As the name indicates this is a Fixed Rate loan option. Your rate would never be subject to change if you choose and close on this product option.
This is the option you would select if your biggest priority was to secure a rate that would not be subject to change. Fixed Rate loans are a single
disbursement lump sum so there is no option for a credit line. Depending on your individual circumstances, a Fixed Rate loan option may not provide
you with as much available loan proceeds as one of the adjustable products so you will want to compare the amount of proceeds available when making
If your current home value is higher than $1.25 Million, this is a product you will want to look at in comparison to the Government product.
The Government Insured Reverse Mortgage has a maximum value currently of $679,650. This means that any additional value above that
figure is not factored into the loan amount calculation. Having a value higher than $679,650 does not prohibit you from still considering the
Government Product, but at higher home values, this product may provide you with significantly more funds available than the Government
Product can. There is no Mortgage Insurance Premium on this product so the closing costs are usually lower for this product in most cases. This is a
Fixed Rate product so the proceeds are given as a lump sum only in lieu of the option for a credit line. If you have a larger existing mortgage or are
looking to receive additional proceeds above what the Government product can provide, this is the best option to accomplish that goal.

My MIL and FIL recently entered a reverse mortgage. House in good shape and worth about $150,000. I expect they will take a large distribution up front as well as withdrawal monthly amounts until they hit the max dictated by the lender. The large distribution up front coupled with fees, closing costs, mortgage insurance and interest build up means that if they continue to live in the house for even 15 years, I expect the loan balance to exceed the value of the home. Glad for the non-recourse nature of... Read Full Article

..one originator’s observations about the undiscussed reasons for problems with the MMI fund. We heard from Brian Montgomery at the annual NRMLA meeting that he envisions further changes coming down the road for the HUD HECM program. Jessica Guerin at The Housing Wire (Housing Wire on Brian Montgomery) tells us that Montgomery outlined the “fixes” attempted by HUD and that they amounted to, in his words, short term fixes that have not worked to stop the losses the reverse mortgage program is suffering. FHA Commissioner Montgomery Hints That... Read Full Article
My neighbor has a reverse mortgage loan, but she has passed away and her relatives live in the home. They are now in the process of selling the home. They have 5 acres with the home and I am interested in buying an acre of the land that borders my property.

And when you say, “expected problems with a new reverse mortgage lender”, that indicates to me that you aren’t even having the issue yet and that this is a new loan you recently closed so it makes it even more difficult to tell...

I am in North Carolina and I'm not on the house deed. We applied for a reverse mortgage, signed the papers and appraisal was done today. I question them about me not being on the house deed and I was told it was not necessary. Is this true? If it is, where do I stand? I hate it when I hear stories like this. I believe you should be given all the information and then allow you to make an informed decision and not just that it’s not necessary. ... Read Full Article
Here is where Appraisals are not updated and correct? Zillow and others use sales per sq ft for cookie-cutter homes. They omit custom built homes in comparable homes because of lack of construction knowledge and insurance coverage?
