Each month in this newsletter we include one or more articles on topics relating to the joys and challenges of aging and caregiving.

The Reverse Mortgage -
A Surprisingly Simple Concept

The reverse mortgage concept is surprisingly simple. Senior homeowners borrow against the equity in their principal residence in pretty much the same fashion as any home-equity refinancing. The principal money may be advanced to the borrower in installments or in a single, lump-sum advance and thereafter accrues interest like any ordinary mortgage. The difference, however, is that the borrower never has to make any interest or principal payments (although the borrower must still pay the taxes and maintenance and repair costs for the mortgaged property). It takes its popular title, the reverse mortgage, because the lender advances to the borrower and never expects any installment payments in return. So colloquially, it’s the reverse of most mortgage financing scenarios.

This isn’t, of course, to suggest the borrower miraculously never has to pay any interest or pay back the principal borrowed. Of course, the borrower has to pay interest and pay back the principal borrowed but just not in regular installments. Instead, all interest and principal continually get added to the amount owing and are all payable in one lump-sum balloon payment at the end of the term.

A reverse mortgage’s term to maturity is unusual. The reverse mortgage doesn’t mature at a fixed time. Instead, reverse mortgages mature whenever the borrower dies or permanently moves out. (in effect being paid by the borrower’s heirs or by the sale proceeds).

The older the borrower is, the more the lender can advance. A truly lucky borrower (for many reasons) is the one who takes out a reverse mortgage and then far outlives the anticipated age of the death. The borrower could in effect, "beat the bank." You will never owe more than the market value of the home.

What if: a borrower needs to sell his/her house prior to death, in order to move into assisted living or another family member's home, or simply wants to downsize to a smaller house?

Answer: The borrower owns the home and can sell it at any time. They or their heir’s only obligation is to pay off the loan when the house is sold or the last spouse permanently leaves the home.

Another option for seniors, the net proceeds may be added to a reverse (no monthly payments required) loan to buy the ‘downsized’ home.

At the end of the day, it’s still pretty simple; will a Reverse Mortgage, with no payments required, make a positive difference in your life?

Bill Binkey will be giving a free seminar "The Reverse Mortgage & Your Retirement Plan " via the Senior Connection Speakers Bureau on Thursday, April 4 from 12-1pm at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, 1202 Green Lane, Prescott. Please see the Meetings section of this newsletter for details.

Submitted by Bill Binkey, Senior Reverse Mortgage Consultant with The Federal Savings Bank. Bill’s mission is to give Seniors the information and resources they need to make a better informed decision about the Reverse Mortgage Program. For a free consultation call Bill at (928) 237-9599 or email homeLOANaRANGER@aol.com or visit his website at www.isAreverseMortgage4me.com
