About All Reverse Mortgage®
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 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.
The city name "Hialeah" is widely believed to have originated from the culture of the Native American Muscogee people, with the words "Haiyakpo" (meaning prairie) and "hili" (translated to pretty) combining into "Hialeah" to mean "pretty prairie." Located on a prairie between the Everglades and Biscayne Bay, Hialeah’s population is estimated to be nearly 250,000 people according to 2019 estimates, but came from relatively humble beginnings.
Pioneer aviator Glenn Curtiss helped to establish the community that would ultimately become Hialeah in the early 1920s, and developed both the town and a race track in the area to build a foundation of commerce and community on what would become a thriving metropolis. The city of Hialeah was incorporated as part of the state of Florida in 1925, but endured a very early though debilitating difficulty in the form of the 1926 Miami hurricane.
Still the people of the community were determined, and Hialeah became a popular destination for hobbies including horse racing, and the grandeur of the Hialeah Park Race Track attracted prominent people from all across America to partake in its activities. Members of political dynasties including the famed Kennedy family, as well as President Harry Truman patronized the racetrack to take in its activities, as did the likes of future United Kingdom Prime Minister Winston Churchill and banker J.P. Morgan.
In 1937, Hialeah was the site of the final goodbye from the continental United States by aviator Amelia Earhart, right before she began her journey around the world which she would tragically never return from.
While originally envisioned as something of an upper-class resort town, Hialeah solidified itself as far more of a working class communities in the decades following. This is partially due to a large number of Cuban exiles fleeing the oppressive government in the wake of the 1959 revolution and rise of Fidel Castro choosing to settle in the area, along with an influx of World War II veterans choosing to settle down and raise families there. This contributed to city planners orienting Hialeah around the idea of primarily being a working class community.
Hialeah experienced explosive growth from the time of its incorporation up through today, nearly a century later. In 1925, the town had an estimated population of only 1,500. Since then, the city has grown at a rate described to be faster than a majority of the 10 larger cities from within the state of Florida since the 1960s, and Hialeah also holds a place as the state's fifth-largest city, with nearly a quarter-million residents.
Hialeah is also home to a rather unique distinction it received by Forbes magazine in 2009: as one of the "most boring cities" to be found in the United States, due to its large population size contrasting with the fact that it has relative anonymity or identity in the national media. For some current and prospective residents, this may be an optimal combination for someone who may be looking for an area with all the amenities of a city, but without other more disruptive elements that can sometimes come with living in large population centers.
19 percent of Hialeah’s population is made up of seniors that are at least 65 years old, based on U.S. Census Bureau data. Of Hialeah’s senior population, 59 percent (accounting for over 13,000 households) are also homeowners as opposed to renters. That means there’s a dedicated community of seniors that call Hialeah their long-term home.
Thousands of the senior households in Hialeah may be eligible to obtain a reverse mortgage. Several of these older homeowners have already done their research and begun using reverse mortgages to support their retirement needs.
Compared with the average home price in Florida, Hialeah’s median home price is greater than the rest of the state at $444,126, according to the Zillow Home Value Index as of January 2023.
Some homes in Hialeah may be worth more than this median value. If your home has been appraised for more than the HUD lending limit of $1,149,825, you may still be able to tap into your home equity with the help of a reverse mortgage.
If you're a homeowner who fits this description and you're interested in using a reverse mortgage to supplement your retirement, you might want to consider a jumbo reverse mortgage, from which you may be able to access a greater portion of your home equity than you otherwise would with a FHA-insured HECM loan.
Reverse mortgages might not be the perfect solution for every homeowner, but depending on your particular situation, a HECM could be something to consider as you approach your retirement years.
