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 the reverse mortgage program it administers for seniors who are 62 and older.
All Reverse Mortgage® originates in Massachusetts 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 new home.
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 lower Principal
Limits as they relate to home values, though, so not all borrowers are best served with the jumbo programs available.
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 for the future as well.
Massachusetts Lending Limits
Massachusetts is the 15th most populous state and is the 44th largest in terms of land size. As of 2017, the state had 6,859,819 estimated residents, and more than 80% of this population lives in the Boston metropolitan area. In 2010, Massachusetts had 1,116,677 residents over the age of 62, and the homeownership rate is at 62%.
Named for the native word “Massachuset” that means “by the range of hills”, colonization of the area took off when the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth in 1620. One of the original 13 colonies, it officially became a state in 1788.
Founded in 1630, the state’s largest city and its capital, Boston, has played heavily in American history, with events such as the ride of Paul Revere and the famous Tea Party happening there. Located just across the Charles River in Cambridge is the nation’s oldest institute of higher learning, Harvard University.
Both basketball and volleyball were invented in western Massachusetts towns in the last 1800s. The state has a long political history and is famously home to the politically prominent Kennedy family. The state also claims the world’s first chocolate chip cookie, made at the Toll House Restaurant in Whitman.
Massachusetts climate is classified as humid continental with cold winters and warm summers. Because of its location on the Atlantic, the state is susceptible to nor’easters, hurricanes, and tropical storms. The hottest day ever recorded was a toasty 107 degrees Fahrenheit on August 2, 1975, but the average high is 81 degrees Fahrenheit, and the average low is 22 degrees Fahrenheit.
After Boston, the next biggest city is Worcester, with a population of 184,542. The state’s leading industries are education, biotechnology, tourism, and financial services. As of 2018, 12 Massachusetts companies are on the national Fortune 500, including General Electric and Liberty Mutual.
The average home value in the state is $399,600, and prices are expected to rise an additional 8.7% in the next year. Given this average, many homes fall below the federal maximum reverse mortgage lending limit of $726,525 that applies to all HECM loans. For more borrowing power above the federal limit, there are jumbo reverse mortgage programs available.
