HUD Approved Direct Lender
All Reverse Mortgage, Inc. (ARLO™) 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, Inc. (ARLO™) originates in Florida and offers refinance loans, where borrowers already own their home and are looking to either pay off their existing loan and have no more monthly mortgage payment; or can help borrowers utilize their equity for other purposes if they have no existing loan or possibly a combination of both.
About All Reverse Mortgage® of Florida
The owners and management of All Reverse 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 as well. Jumbo or proprietary programs typically offer much lower Principal Limits as they relate to values though 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 the mortgage of last resort.
Everything from the elimination of existing mortgage payments to the line of credit 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 as well.
Florida Lending Limits
The Sunshine state has a population of 21.5 million and 1,695,810 of those people are homeowners age 62 and older, which means more than one-and-a-half million people may be eligible for a reverse mortgage.
The average home value in Florida is $252,309, which is much lower than the HECM reverse mortgage lending limit of $970,800.
Florida was the first region in the continental United States to receive the first European travelers and settlers, including renowned Spanish conquistador Juan Ponce de León, who arrived in what would become Florida in 1513. It was he who first gave the territory its name, La Florida, and the territory largely remained under Spanish control until 1763. That year, in exchange for control of Havana, Cuba, Spain traded Florida to the British Empire.
After skirmishes between the British, Spanish and the newly-formed United States that lasted the better part of a century after Florida changed hands, the territory was welcomed as the 27th state of the United States in 1845. Just 15 years later, Florida would approve of secession and join the Confederacy in the American Civil War. After the Confederacy lost the war in 1865, it took an additional three years for the state’s congressional delegation to be restored in Washington, D.C.
Until the mid-20th century, Florida was actually the least-populous state in the American South, but it started to become more populated as it would gain popularity as both a vacation and retirement destination beginning in the 1920s, when the state enjoyed a land boom. That newfound prosperity was threatened both by two separate devastating hurricanes at the end of the decade and the breakout of the Great Depression, but the state recovered amidst the military buildup of World War II.
Now, Florida is the most populous state in the American Southeast, with its economy being reoriented around both agriculture permitted by its climate as well as tourism.
The state of Florida is most often thought of when people think of a place many Americans go to retire. In fact, there are nearly 2 million homeowners aged 62 and older in the Sunshine State. Florida is also the third-most populous and eighth-most densely populated state in the country. Popular retirement destinations within Florida include The Villages, Boynton Beach, Lady Lake, Clearwater and Naples, among others.
Florida’s economy heavily relies on tourism, agriculture and transportation. The state is known for its beaches, amusement parks, orange farming, the Kennedy Space Center and as a stereotypical area for retirees.
The Orlando, Florida area is known for its concentration of world-renowned theme parks, including the Walt Disney World Resort. It consists of theme parks including the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It also includes the water parks Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach. The city is also home to the Universal Orlando Resort, which includes Universal Studios Florida, the Islands of Adventure park, the Volcano Bay water park, and which will soon include an entirely new theme park called Epic Universe which is slated to open in 2024.
Florida has many sports teams, which include three NFL teams, two MLB teams, two NBA teams, two NHL teams and one MLS team. Auto racing is also a big deal in the state as Daytona Beach, Florida is the headquarters of NASCAR, which is where the Daytona 500 is held each February.
