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.
Sylmar is the northernmost neighborhood in Los Angeles, California, the second largest city in the nation. It’s primarily known for its ample olive orchards, and its history goes back to the 18th century.
The population, as of 2008, is estimated to be just about 80,000 residents, and it features one of the lowest population densities found in the Los Angeles area. In 1893, the area of unincorporated land left over after the establishment of San Fernando as a city was named Sylmar.
The area is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city of Los Angeles, seeing a boost of population between 1980 and 1990 by over 30%. This population boom led to a housing shortage in the area, though the population density has remained generally low over the past forty years.
Sylmar is home to a nationally-renowned museum, the Nethercutt Collection, which contains a centerpiece of early and classic cars. The collection has been hailed by the New York Times and the Washington Post as one of the finest car collections in the world. Professional baseball player Alex Mejia was born in Sylmar, and grew up to help lead the Arizona Wildcats to victory at the 2012 College World Series. He became a player for Major League Baseball in 2012, playing for the St. Louis Cardinals until 2018.
10 percent of Los Angeles’ population is made up of seniors that are at least 65 years old, based on U.S. Census Bureau data. Of the senior population, 59 percent of L.A. seniors are also homeowners as opposed to renters. That means there’s a dedicated community of seniors that call Sylmar their long-term home
Thousands of the senior households in Sylmar 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 California, Sylmar’s median home price is less than the rest of the state at $735,407, according to the Zillow Home Value Index as of January 2023. Prices in the area have increased 4.7% in the last year.
Some homes in Sylmar 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.
