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 seaport city of Seattle holds the title of the largest city in both the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest region of North America. In May 2015, the city made the top five fastest-growing major cities in the country list.
As of 2015, there were estimated to be 684,451 people calling Seattle home. Of those residents, 54,584 of them were homeowners 62 and older.
The city was previously inhabited by Native Americans and was named in 1852 after Chief Si’ahl of the local Duwamish and Suquamish tribes. In the late 19th century, Seattle began in its first major industry, logging. The Boeing company settled in The Emerald City and brought even more growth following World War II.
Seattle also became a music center in the early 1900s and had almost two dozen jazz nightclubs. Musicians Ray Charles, Quincy Jones and Ernestine Anderson all developed their early careers in the city. Seattle is also the birthplace of rock legend Jimi Hendrix.
The 1980s marked the transition of the city turning into a technology center when Microsoft set up shop there, followed by Amazon in the mid-1990s. Between 1990 and 2000, Seattle saw an influx in population of almost 500,000.
The average home value in Seattle is $927,525, which has increased 7.1% in the past year. The maximum lending limit of $1,089,300 applies to FHA-insured reverse mortgages, but jumbo loans are available for homes with values that fall above that lending limit.
There are plenty of things to do to stay busy in Seattle including visiting the Seattle Orchestra, the Pacific Northwest Ballet, the Seattle Art Museum, the Seattle Great Wheel and the Seattle International Film Festival each year over Memorial Day weekend.
