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 Scottsdale and closes both 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, utilize their equity for other purposes if they have no existing loan, or possibly a
combination of both.
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.
Scottsdale Lending Limits
Scottsdale, AZ is often selected as a popular destination for retirees given the city's arid desert climate, scenic landscape and abundance of amenities
designed for taking it easy.
The city, which is annually rated among the nation's most desirable communities to live in, boasts a vibrant downtown scene that is home to more than
90 restaurants, 320 retail shops and more than 80 art galleries.
For the outdoorsy types, Scottsdale's McDowell Sonoran Preserve, located in the city's northern region, is the largest urban wilderness area in the U.S. and
features more than 60 miles of trails through scenic desert terrain.
Approximately 236,000 people call Scottsdale, AZ their home. Of this population, at least 20% is age 65 or older, according to Census Bureau data. More than
35,000 homeowners living in the city are age 62 and older, making them eligible to apply for a reverse mortgage.
To qualify for a reverse mortgage, you must be at least 62 years of age and have sufficient equity in your home. You will also be required to demonstrate your
ability and willingness to maintain mandatory obligations, such as property taxes and homeowner's insurance, throughout the life of the loan.
Among all homeowners living in the area Scottsdale metropolitan area, the median home price is $414,100, according to the Zillow Home Value Index. Zillow also
indicates that prices have been rising in Scottsdale and will continue to increase over the next year.
For now, this means that half of Scottsdale homeowners have properties valued above $414,100, and half of homeowners have properties valued below that price
level. This bodes well for homeowners with home prices below the HUD loan limit of $636,150, who may be able to take advantage of a HECM loan.
But this doesn't mean that homeowners with more expensive properties are excluded from getting a reverse mortgage.
These higher value homeowners may be better suited obtaining a "jumbo" reverse mortgage, thus allowing them to potentially access a greater portion of
their home equity than they would otherwise access with a traditional HECM.
It is important to note that reverse mortgages might not be the right fit for every homeowner. But depending on your particular situation, a HECM could be
something to consider as you approach your retirement years.
