Benefits of buying and selling a house with the reverse mortgage

  • It is good for people who are over 62 who have a reverse mortgage or probably thinking about it. There is more advantage right now to take advantage of more equity in your home
  • The process of selling and buying a new home is a serious concept for seniors to think about.
  • Especially if you have a home that is too big for you and not anymore a senior-friendly home for you
  • In addition, the mortgage payment is optional. People don’t ever have to pay for a mortgage.
  • Also, the only contract you would have with a reverse mortgage is to make it your primary home and pay your taxes and insurance
  • The fear of the value going down DOES NOT exist with the reverse mortgage and you are totally protected for the rest of your life
  • Lastly, if you have a lot of equity after you refinance, do not take the money out and let it sits on the loan to increase its interest

Is a reverse mortgage’s closing cost substantially higher than a standard mortgage?

  • They are different and there is an upfront fee paid to FHA for the mortgage insurance making this program possible
  • It might be a little higher than a non-reversed mortgage. However, all the money can always be rolled into a loan so they are NOT a cash payment
  • Most of the time, the cost to get into the loan is covered by the equity growth in almost less than a year, so no cash out of pocket
  • The insurance policy guarantees that the lenders get paid at the end and your relatives don’t have to absorb the property without paying it off
