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.

no comments We had a “unique” caller leave us a message this weekend who questioned us on an endorsement we had received from Jack Guttentag, known to many as the Mortgage Professor. Seems she felt that this was a scam and she contended that Guttentag meant good day in German and that this meant that it could not be Jack’s real name or that he could not be a real person as a result. This lovely lady, in her profanity laced rant ended with an “F-bomb” because she felt that... Read Full Article

no comments The plain and simple answer is a little bit, but not really. Dave Ramsey does a hit piece on reverse mortgages in which he does point out some of the less popular aspects of reverse mortgages, but he has no problems either exaggerating or just shows his ignorance about the product.

He is right when he says a reverse mortgage operates in reverse of a standard or forward loan. ... Read Full Article

2 comments If I do a reverse mortgage, can I pull all the money up front as a lump sum or do I have to have a line of credit, and is there cost to pulling out all the money up front? Hi David, HUD changed the program a little while back so that borrowers are capped at what they can pull from the home based on bona fide property charges that they have to pay with the loan. The bottom line is that borrowers who need all their funds to pay... Read Full Article
