The great news is we are now living longer, more active, lives. The downside for many is that planning for this longevity is not always easy. A HECM Reverse Mortgage is a great way for retirees and seniors to take advantage of the equity they have built up in their home without the burden of unwarranted risk or tax liability and without having to sell their home. For many seniors, a HECM Reverse Mortgage can provide balance and alleviate the fear of running out of money or outliving financial resources. Whether you are retired or planning for retirement, a government insured HECM Reverse Mortgage may prove to be a nice tool to help you manage your cash flow and secure a more comfortable retirement. Important objectives that can be achieved with a Reverse Mortgage include: Paying off forward mortgages and traditional home equity lines thereby balancing debt, increasing monthly cash flow so you can more easily maintain your lifestyle on your current fixed income, establishing a safe credit line for emergencies, paying and planning for in home care needs, and establishing cost effective alternatives for long term care insurance on your terms with more personal flexibility.
A Reverse Mortgage is very different than a traditional mortgage. With a traditional mortgage loan, you are required to make monthly mortgage payments, but with a Reverse Mortgage there are no required monthly mortgage payments and the lender pays you money through an up front lump sum payment, monthly installments, the establishment of a credit line, or a combination of these funding options. The money that you receive from a Reverse Mortgage is dependent on your age and the value of your home as determined by an FHA appraiser.

One of the great advantages of a reverse mortgage is that you are not required to pay the loan back until the home is no longer your primary residence or upon the death of your spouse. And you will never owe more than the value of your home regardless of fluctuations in value. Many of these flexible features and benefits of HECM Reverse Mortgages are summarized here on our site.
