3 Reverse Mortgage Questions to Consider

What is a Reverse Mortgage Loan?

The reason this type of mortgage is called a “reverse mortgage” is because the money goes directly to the home owner instead of into paying for the home.

Eventually the money paid to the homeowner is repaid with interest, however it generally doesn’t become due until the homeowner leaves the home due to death, move, fails to maintain the home or otherwise fails to comply with loan terms.
