Reverse Mortgages

If you’re at least 62 years old, you may be able to turn the value of your home into cash in your pocket. This kind of borrowing is what’s known as a reverse mortgage.

A reverse mortgage

  • Is a loan against your home’s equity
  • Requires no repayment as long as you reside in your home
  • Is repaid when the home is sold, if you move out or when you pass away
  • Can be paid to you in one lump sum, in monthly supplements or used as a line of credit
  • Will never exceed the home’s value; if the home is worth less at the time of repayment than the amount borrowed you only need to pay back up to the current market value

If you need cash but don’t want to sell your home, a reverse mortgage may be right for you. Talk with your SRES® about your options. They can connect you with reverse mortgage counselors and lenders to help you determine your eligibility and the best course of action for your unique situation.
