Reverse mortgages (also referred to as "home equity conversion loans") give older homeowners the ability to tap into home equity without having to sell their home. Choosing between a monthly amount, a line of credit, or a lump sum, you can get a loan based on your home equity. Paying back your loan isn't required until the homeowner sells the home, moves (such as into a care facility) or passes away. You or an estate representative must pay back the reverse mortgage funds, interest accrued, and finance charges when your house is sold, or you are no longer living in it.
The conditions of a reverse mortgage usually include being sixty-two or older, maintaining your property as your main living place, and having a small balance on your mortgage or having paid it off.
Reverse mortgages are ideal for retired homeowners or those who are no longer working and have a need to add to their income. Social Security and Medicare benefits can't be affected; and the funds are not taxable. Reverse Mortgages may have adjustable or fixed rates. Your residence will never be in danger of being taken away from you by the lender or put up for sale without your consent if you live past your loan term - even if the current property value creeps under the balance of the loan.
