Is a Reverse Mortgage a Better Option Than Selling My Home?
Selling your home eliminates one of your largest and most secure investments. The fees from the sale alone will eat up 6-10% of your homes equity. Moving is often emotionally and physically exhausting. Then you may have to pay rent or make another monthly payment that takes away from your lifetime savings.

What is a Reverse Mortgage?
A Reverse Mortgage is like any other mortgage loan except for one KEY detail! You’re not required to make a mortgage payment! A Reverse Mortgage is a loan for a senior homeowner that uses a portion of the home’s equity as collateral. The loan generally does not have to be repaid until the last surviving homeowner permanently moves out of the property or passes away. All remaining equity is inherited by the estate.
