What is a reverse mortgage?
The concept is simple. You've spent years building equity in your home by paying off (or paying down) your mortgage, and through the appreciation in your home’s value. A reverse mortgage simply allows you to withdraw a portion of that equity, to use in any way you like.
You can stay in your home for as long as you like. When you’re ready to sell your home, or you have passed, the loan is repaid at that time.
There are no tax consequences, you do not forfeit any of your rights as the homeowner, and you or the heirs of your choosing decide when or if the home is to be sold. When the loan is repaid, 100% of the remaining equity belongs to you, your heirs or your estate.
Unlike a traditional mortgage, reverse mortgages do not require a monthly payment. In fact, the reverse mortgage pays you in your choice of a lump sum, monthly payments or a combination of both—the choice is entirely up to you.
To qualify for a reverse mortgage:
- The youngest homeowner must be 62 years of age or older
- The home must be your primary residence
- Property taxes must be kept current
- Current and adequate homeowner's insurance must be in place
- The type of home and condition of the property must meet standard HUD guidelines
Reverse mortgage is a government-regulated program, so the interest rate, loan terms and structure are the same at all financial institutions offering this product. Service and experience are what homeowners should look for in a lender, which is why you should choose Meridian Trust.
