HUD Approved Direct Lender
All Reverse Mortgage® is approved with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to originate,
underwrite and close the HUD Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM, or "Heck-um"). The HECM is HUD's acronym for their reverse mortgage loan.
All Reverse Mortgage® originates in Chicago and offers several reverse mortgage options: in some instances borrowers are looking to pay off their
existing loan and eliminate their monthly mortgage payment; or if they already have paid off their mortgage, a reverse loan can help borrowers
utilize their equity for other purposes. In some cases, borrowers can do both. They also may use a specific type of reverse mortgage to purchase a
About All Reverse Mortgage®
The owners and management of All Reverse Mortgage® were part of the team that wrote and sold the first fixed-rate jumbo reverse
mortgage in 2008 and as such, have extensive experience in jumbo or proprietary loan programs as well. We are always looking for new products
to offer to borrowers of high valued homes in the higher home priced markets that the HUD HECM may just not serve well. Jumbo or proprietary
programs typically offer much lower Principal Limits as they relate to values, so not all borrowers are better served with the jumbo programs.
Only a seasoned originator can readily inform borrowers which program will best suit their needs and the positives and negatives of each
so that the borrower can make an informed decision. It is no longer uncommon anywhere in the country for a market to be a
solid HUD HECM market and then within just a short distance for a niche jumbo market to be located where there is a need for a jumbo program.
Therefore, homeowners aged 62 and above in all markets have seen that the reverse mortgage can be a very solid financial tool and many are now
seeking the reverse mortgage to augment their retirement plans and not so much as a mortgage of last resort. Everything from the elimination of the
existing mortgage payments to the line of credit that grows that grows make reverse mortgage borrowers understand that this program allows them to utilize their
homes to not only live comfortably in their family home, but to plan for the future as well.
