Why a Reverse Mortgage Loan?
What is a Reverse Mortgage Loan?
A reverse mortgage loan is a special type of mortgage that enables you, as a home owner, to tap the equity you have in your home while giving you the maximum amount of flexibility to address your particular financial needs.
It is known as a "non-recourse loan," which means the borrower will never owe more than their home's appraised value at the time the loan matures. The loan does not become due until the last owner/borrower ceases to occupy the home as a primary residence.
With a reverse mortgage loan, you borrow against the value of your home and receive loan proceeds according to the payment plan which you select. As a borrower, you are permitted to change payment plans at any time after loan origination date, as many times as you wish.
For example, you can receive a lump sum to pay an unexpected hospital bill or a opt for a stream of regular payments to supplement your monthly income. Unlike traditional home equity loans, no repayment of the loan is required until you no longer occupy the home as your principal residence. At that point, the accrued interest plus what the lender has lent you through the years is due.
