What is a California Reverse Mortgage?
A reverse mortgage is a financial tool that allows homeowners 62+ to tap into their home equity without selling the home. You continue to live in the property and utilize the equity to support your retirement without a monthly mortgage. These days, having additional financial resources can help you preserve your investment portfolio and allows you to age in place. Plus, you are not restricted in how you wish to spend the money.
To remain compliant with the reverse mortgage lender, you must use the home as your primary residence, maintain the home in good condition and stay current with all taxes and insurance. Payouts are available as a line of credit or monthly payments to you. (tenure or term) or as a lump sum.
Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM) are FHA insured and considered "non-recourse," which means you never owe more than the home's value. The loan becomes due when an event occurs – such as you selling your home or when you pass. Options to repay the loan include through refinance or selling the home.
