Information on Reverse Mortgage

Even without a house payment, senior citizens may still find that things they need and wish for are still out of their grasp when only a social security check provides their income. When they are still making house payments, the situation only worsens. For these people, getting information on reverse mortgage possibilities can be just the Godsend they need.

A reverse mortgage is quite simple. It is a home loan that allows part of the equity in the house to be converted into cash.  The current mortgage, if there is one, is paid off, and any additional cash going directly to the homeowner. The difference between a reverse mortgage and a home equity loan is that the homeowner does not need to pay the loan back. Not, at least, until they die or leave the home permanently. In a traditional mortgage, the homeowner makes regular monthly payments to pay down the total amount of the loan until it is paid off. The reverse mortgage does not involve any monthly payments as long as the homeowner is still alive and living full time in the home. 

In order to qualify for this type of mortgage, the following criteria must be met:

Homeowners must be 62 years of age or older

The home must be fully owned or have only a small balance left on the existing mortgage

Homeowners must use the property as their primary residence

No delinquency of debt can exist

Counseling sessions must be attended to be fully informed of the mortgage process

It is important to note that this type of mortgage is not for everyone. For individuals who have a cash store, it will likely be an expensive measure for them. Even though monthly payments are not made, interest does accrue on the mortgage amount monthly.

For those seniors with poor cash flow but the rich asset of a house, receiving information on reverse mortgage procedures can be a great benefit. It can alleviate a stressful situation or help to make a dream come true for many people.
