In this paper we will discuss reverse mortgage. We will define reverse mortgage and provide details regarding the benefits and the eligibility requirements of reverse mortgages. Reverse mortgage is a type of loan that enables eligible homeowners easily obtain a tax-free cash flow.
Millions of people, especially senior citizens, are applying for reverse mortgages to secure their post-retirement lives. Because the government sponsors and insures this loan program no payments are required during the loan’s tenure, as long as the borrower lives in the home. Reverse mortgages allow borrowers to access the money they spent building up their home equity.
There are three types of Reverse Mortgage: Federally Insured Mortgage, Uninsured Mortgage, and Lender Insured Mortgage. Different kinds of reverse mortgage products are available on the market, such as the Mae Home Keeper mortgages, home equity conversion mortgages, and cash accounts. The loan is classified according to the type of the residential property.
