Reverse Mortgage Loans are a powerful and reliable tool.
Here are six of the most common questions that children of retirees have about Reverse Mortgage Loans.
Would My Parents Own Their Home?
Yes, they would remain the owners of their home with all rights and privileges, just as they are now. No one could make them leave the home if they did not want to as long as loan terms are met. They could sell the home at any time they wanted to and would keep any profits that were left over from the sale.
Would They Have Monthly Payments?
No, they would not have to make monthly payments. Your parents would be committed to making the home their primary residence, paying homeowners insurance, property taxes, and maintaining the home. They could choose to make payments for tax purposes, but only if they wanted to.*
Could I End Up Owing Money for This?
No. Because this is a non-recourse loan, you cannot ever owe more than the house itself. The loan is repaid when the home is sold. Their heirs have the option of paying off the loan or selling the home. If the loan exceeds the market value of the home, federal insurance covers the difference. If there’s a profit from the sale, the heirs keep it.
How Much Money Would My Parents be Eligible for?
That depends on a number of factors, including their ages, the market value of the home, and the interest rate. Fill out this brief form on behalf of your parents or call me at 866-518-3196 to talk about the potential benefits of a Reverse Mortgage.
