Reverse Mortgage Long Island


Consider Your Options

"You took care of your home, now let your home take care of you". (sm)  This has been my slogan for many years, and I truly believe in it.  After investing their lives in caring for their homes, many senior homeowners are still investing in a home that has never given them a financial return.   "Why not let my home pay me back?"  Perhaps, it's a concept some seniors don't consider. Like many senior homeowners, especially here on Long Island, being house rich/cash poor is not unusual.  But with a Reverse Mortgage, things can change for the better. If you live on Long Island or anywhere in New York or New Jersey, I can help!

Reverse Mortgages Have Changed

Over the past fifty years, Reverse Mortgages have been enhanced to provide all the safeguards you'd want in a mortgage. And knowing the Reverse Mortgage line of credit that may be available to you will grow at the same rate as the interest, well, that's a pretty incredible thing.  Whether you are looking to finance using a Reverse Mortgage or purchase another home with the HECM for Purchase program. it just might work for you.  Give me a call with any questions you may have.

Aging in America & Retirement

Will Your Income Be Enough?

 "According to the National Council on Aging, one third of senior households have no extra money and may be in debt after meeting essential monthly expenses. One of the biggest problems facing baby boomers is there just isn't enough money for retirement.  

I don’t know about you, but this is hardly the retirement lifestyle that many of us dream about." ( )

Can a Reverse Mortgage help? Yes, it can!

What is a Reverse Mortgage?



So Just  What IS a Reverse Mortgage?
A reverse mortgage is a special type of loan which enables homeowners age 62 and above to convert part of the equity in their home into tax-free cash without having to sell the home, give up title, or take on a new monthly mortgage payment.  A reverse mortgage will not affect Social Security or Medicare, and there are no health qualifications or stipulations on the use of the proceeds. A reverse mortgage does not require any monthly mortgage payments, but the homeowner must reside in the home as the principal residence.

Currently, the reverse mortgage that is available is the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) which was created by the federal government and is managed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These loans are insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and require that the borrower:

* Be at least 62 years of age

* Be a homeowner (single family 1-4 units, FHA approved condos, PUDs, manufactured homes, some mixed-use commercial properties)

* Live in the home as their primary residence

* Receive HUD-approved reverse 

mortgage counseling
* Not be delinquent on any federal debt

Reverse Mortgage: Your Retirement Plan

Your Equity, No Restrictions, Flexible, You Remain on Title

There are no restrictions on how your Reverse Mortgage proceeds can be used, after all, it's YOUR money, sort of a retirement plan sitting under your roof just waiting to be  used. Like many of those who take advantage of Reverse Mortgages, you can do any number of the things you've been dreaming of.

Is it considered taxable income?  Absolutely not! It's YOUR equity so it's not considered income so, again, your money is completely tax free. Now, that doesn't mean that everyone who does a reverse mortgage has to be destitute or desperate.  Many borrowers simply wish to supplement their income so they can be free to do any number of things with the extra cash.

A lot of seniors are dependent solely on Social Security and their pension but have no other resources to fall back on so a reverse mortgage can be extremely helpful.  For the husband or wife who loses a spouse, a reverse mortgage can make all the difference in the world. Here's another use for reverse mortgages.  One of my borrowers was able to obtain $2,500 a month for the rest of his life to pay for his in-home care workers.  In a word, a reverse mortgage is freedom -- freedom to do what you want with the equity in your home.

The Maximum Claim Amount is now  $679,650, the maximum amount you are currently permitted to borrow, and it is set and regulated by HUD. The amount you receive is based on the age of the youngest borrower, the appraised value of your home, your available equity, and current interest rates.  Hence, the older you are, the more money you receive.

A reverse mortgage is a mortgage just like any other mortgage. You STILL retain title to your home, and you always remain on the deed. The only requirements are for you to continue paying your taxes and homeowner's insurance (flood insurance where required), condo fees if it's a condominium, and maintain the home in good repair.

A Reverse Mortgage is an equity loan of sorts but different!  Unlike a typical equity line, the amount of money available in your equity line increases over time. And if you don't use it, you don't owe it. With an equity loan (HELOC), each time you want more money, you have to refinance.


What Can You Do With a Reverse Mortgage?

Pay Off Debt


With the HECM (Reverse Mortgage), you may be able to pay off credit card debt and even a current mortgage. Zeroing out a current mortgage can make life a lot easier. Wiping out a monthly mortgage payment puts a smile on anyone's face. Ask yourself if having more spendable cash would change your life for the better.  I am sure the answer is "YES"!

Generate Cash Flow


Have you been putting off traveling or buying a new car or visiting kids or grandkids? Taking cash out with a Reverse Mortgage can change your financial picture. A monthly stipend that arrives in your bank each month can make life more comfortable. With  the HECM, you can take cash out, get monthly proceeds, or get a line of credit, or a combination.of all three

Renovate Your Home


Some Reverse Mortgage borrowers renovate their homes, others set up a line of credit for the future or lifetime monthly proceeds. It all depends on your needs and your wants. In-home care can be paid for with your proceeds. Analyzing your financial plan can go a long way in setting up the correct way to receive your Reverse Mortgage proceeds.
