Articles About Home Reverse Mortgages
Reverse mortgages allow you to convert equity in your home into supplementary cash to use whenever, and however, you wish: as a lump-sum, monthly payment or as a line of credit you can tap as needed. The loan does not have to be repaid as long as you continue to live in your home.
The loan is backed and guaranteed by the Federal Government.
The home must be your primary residence.
Title to the property remains in your name.
Borrower must pay property taxes, hazard insurance and keep the home maintained.
You do NOT make monthly payments. EVER!
Cash received is TAX FREE!
You own your home – no different than a traditional mortgage.
Social Security benefits and Medicare are generally not affected by a reverse mortgage – consult your tax advisor.
