"My grandmother had passed away. She had a reverse mortgage and left the property to my father. My father needed to take out a reverse mortgage himself, so that he could put the property the reverse his name. It was a unique situation we were in and possibly going to lose the home based on timing. With the pandemic, things got pushed around and moved around. When it came to timing, suddenly, it came up on us, and we had to act quickly. He was very quick, and was really very open and fantastic communication. Very upfront and honest about the process, what we needed, what was going to happen and what the final outcome would be. I wish we had found him sooner. Obviously it was a timing issue on our end, but he did a fantastic job." Client - Nicole Hernandez, San Pedro, CA Read More About Reverse Your Thinking® Mortgage's Mission

A growing number of retirement researchers, such as Harold Evensky, John Salter, and Wade Pfau, have carried out a significant amount of research to evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of a reverse mortgage. In addition to the potential uses for it and the value it adds to the retirement income distribution planning. All of these highly respected researchers have reached the same conclusion, which is that the reverse mortgage credit line provides particular value as a tool that can increase the likelihood of successful client outcomes and legacy value.
How can a reverse mortgage be a tool for retirement? “A fiduciary planner has to look out for the best interests of their clients. As a side effect, the best interests of the planner can be served through research that shows how the legacy value of assets can be improved by a reverse mortgage.” —Wade D. Pfau, Ph.D., CFA, Professor of Retirement Income, The American College
According to Wade Pfac, leading expert in legacy wealth planning. As of September of 2018, The results of studies conducted over the past few years have, in general, indicated that this conventional wisdom is limiting and unproductive. Beginning the process of getting a reverse mortgage sooner and planning out your spending from the equity in your home over the course of your retirement will help you fulfill your spending goals while also leaving a larger legacy. Utilizing one's assets in a manner that paves the way for increased spending and/or increased legacy-leaving capacity is the essence of retirement-income efficiency. The value of any remaining financial assets along with the value of any remaining home equity after the reverse mortgage loan balance has been repaid is what is referred to as legacy wealth. Since money can be exchanged for other forms, it is not particularly relevant important to know the exact ratio of financial assets to remaining home equity. Only the combined weight of these two aspects will be considered significant in the final analysis.
HECM Line of Credit: A unique safety net offering a growth feature and flexible repayment With its flexible payment options, a HECM can give eligible clients more financial control and can help you design more solutions for your clients. It can serve as an excellent risk management tool that can help keep productive assets under your management and help their portfolios last longer.
Wade Pfau states, “The line of credit provides a way to create a more efficient retirement income strategy while also serving as a hedge if the client’s home value were to fall. It is essentially a put option on the value of the home.”
Right size into a home that is right for you. You can also use a reverse mortgage to help you purchase a new home. With the HECM for Purchase option, you’ll need cash or equity from a prior home to put down a relatively large down payment, and you can use the reverse mortgage to finance the rest of the home purchase.
Jumbo Reverse Mortgages are available for High-Valued homes if you choose to Age in Place. Some reverse mortgage lenders have developed their versions of the government-backed home equity conversion mortgage (HECM) product in response to the substantial increase in home property values in particular regions of the United States. This is their answer to the federally insured HECM reverse mortgage loan, which can only cover a certain amount of a home's value.
These programs have the same safety provisions as the FHA (federal housing administration) HECM program. Like the FHA loan, this loan is still non-recourse. The title stays in the homeowner’s name, the children still inherit, and so on with non recourse loans.
What is significantly different is that we can use full property values of up to $10 million to make a loan of up to $6 million. There are no monthly payment requirements for these jumbo reverse mortgage loans.
Repaying the Loan Loan repayment is not due as long as you meet the loan obligations.
Living in the home as your primary residence,
Continuing to pay required property taxes and insurance,
Maintaining the home according to FHA requirements.
When it comes time to repay the loan, neither you nor your heirs will be obliged to pay more than the home's current market value. Even if the outstanding balance on your mortgage is more than the home's value, the loan will be paid off as long as you or your heirs decide to sell the home. Best of all, any remaining equity goes to you or your heirs once the loan is repaid.
For heirs wishing to keep the home, a larger legacy offers an extra bonus of additional financial assets after the loan balance has been repaid. The home is not lost.
