The Reverse Mortgage

Research shows that there are 10,000 a day reaching retirement age. Our generation is the least prepared financially for retirement.  We are more active, living longer, spend more and save less. 

We at AdvisorMortgage believe that  the Reverse Mortgage is the best option for those of us who own a home and need a financial backstop that a Reverse Mortgage provides.
The traditional mortgage will not economically help us in our senior years.

Reverse Mortgage Basics

What is a Reverse Mortgage

Home Equity Conversion Mortgage is a regular mortgage that has a very unusual repayment program.  FHA guarantees that no payments are required until after you permanently move out of the house. Another guarantee is only the home equity is responsible to pay off the mortgage--- not you, not your heirs, not your trust, not your estate or not another asset of yours.

Senior Statistics

Living Longer. 1 out of 4 people over 65 will live past 90 years old.  

Over dependence on social security. For 40% of single seniors over 65, 90% of their income comes from Social Security. 

Bankruptcy? Seniors are the fastest-growing group of bankruptcy filers in the country.

Mortgage Payments

Payments during your lifetime, while you’re living, are optional. 33% of people over 62 years old are making mortgage payments when they don’t need to be!

Equity or Cash. Which is better?

A Reverse Mortgage creates liquidity for an otherwise illiquid asset.   

What is more valued, equity in your home or cash? Cash is the most important ingredient for retirement.

Net Worth

For a typical person, their home equity can be valued at 30%-50% of our net worth.    

Clients must be able to understand the fundamental difference between their homes, the most intimate object of their financial lives, and the equity in their home.
