All Reverse Mortgage, Inc.

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.
European settlers claimed the area of what is now Olympia, WA in 1846. The Treaty of Medicine Creek was initiated in 1854, followed by the Treaty of Olympia in January 1856. Olympia was incorporated as a town on January 28, 1859, and as a city in 1882. Today it is the capital city of Washington state and a cultural center of the southern Puget Sound region.
In 1850, the town settled on the name Olympia because of its view of the Olympic Mountains. The original site of Olympia had been home to Lushootseed-speaking peoples known as the Steh-Chass. It also became the home of the customs house, driving steady population growth as a result of the Oregon Trail immigrants. Olympia was growing at a commendable rate, but there were still territorial clashes between settlers and native tribes. The Treaty of Medicine Creek was commissioned to address this issue, however, pushback from some of the tribe elders led to a controversial and violent ending.
Now, Olympia is widely known for its broad spectrum of public parks and nature conservation areas. There is also a boardwalk leading north to an open-air amphitheater, a viewing tower beside the Port of Olympia, as well as the Olympia Farmers' Market. Additionally,Olympia is a regional center for fine arts. A number of theatrical experiences are available with companies such as Animal Fire Theater, Olympia Family Theater, Olympia Little Theater, Goldfinch Productions, and Harlequin Productions at the historic State Theater. The Olympia Symphony Orchestra performs five regular season concerts at the Washington Center and two pop concerts. The Masterworks Chorale Ensemble performs four regular season concerts at the Washington Center for the Performing Arts.
Olympia’s climate is largely aligned with the surrounding Mediterranean summer climate, with additional influence from the Pacific Ocean. On average, Olympia sees 136 days of sun per year, compared to the national average of 205. It also receives 53 inches of precipitation, with 8 inches of rain each year. The average high temperature is around 77 degrees, and the average low typically reaches around 34 degrees.
17.5 percent of Olympia’s population is made up of seniors that are at least 65 years old, based on U.S. Census Bureau data. Of Olympia’s senior population, 63 percent (accounting for 2,565 households) are also homeowners as opposed to renters. That means there’s a dedicated community of seniors that call Olympia their long-term home.
Thousands of the senior households in Olympia 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 Washington, Olympia’s median home price is less than the rest of the state at $535,431, according to the Zillow Home Value Index as of January 2023. Prices in the area have increased 10.6% over the past year.
Some homes in Olympia may be worth more than this median value. If your home has been appraised for more than the 2023 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.
