REVERSE MORTGAGES

A reverse mortgage allows you to get money from your home equity, borrowing up to a maximum of 55% of the current value of your home, without having to sell your home.

You’ve made your payments and paid down your mortgage, and now you have a substantial amount of equity in your home. A reverse mortgage allows you to take advantage of this equity without having to sell your home. If you’re 55 years and older, a reverse mortgage could be a great fit for you.

Reverse mortgages are typically repaid either when you move out of the home or when the last borrower passes away. However, the loan may need to be paid back sooner if the home is no longer your principal residence, you fail to pay your property taxes or homeowners insurance, or do not keep the home in good repair.
