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 Villages is a collection of retirement villages in Sumter County, Florida. As a census-designated place, The Villages shares its name with a larger community of age-restricted homes representing the largest collective 55+ community in the U.S. with roughly 130,000 residents and spanning around 32 square miles.
During the time period between 2010 and 2020 The Villages was the fastest growing U.S. metro, growing nearly 40% during that 10-year timeframe, as it offers abundant amenities to America’s aging population.
The community began as a series of land tracts, sold by mail order in the 1960s by The Villages founder Harold Schwartz. Later, to mirror the growth among other fast-growing U.S. retirement communities, the community’s ownership opted to add significant amenities, leading to community expansion during the 1980s and continuing into the 2000s. Relative to other communities in the U.S., homeownership rates in The Villages are high, with much higher-than-average down payments.
Today, the median home value in The Villages, Florida is $528,896 — an increase of 25 percent in the last year. Most homes in The Villages are below the federal reverse mortgage lending limit of $1,149,825. For those with homes valued above the federal lending limit, there are several private jumbo reverse mortgage programs available that may better suit those homeowners.
