Please be patient while we calculate ….
Refinancing a reverse mortgage can be desirable for those whom already have a reverse mortgage and may want to lower their rate and / or receive more cash proceeds.
When considering a refinancing an existing reverse mortgage, the borrower must take into consideration a few things. First, will the borrower benefit from a reverse mortgage refinance. Benefits can be broken down into several components:
Will refinancing a current reverse mortgage lower my interest rate?
Will the borrower receive more funds with a refi?
Often times when these benefits are answered with a yes, the borrower is capable of refinancing. However, in order to refinance, the borrower must receive, in funds, five times the costs of the reverse mortgage fee’s. In many cases this can be met simply due to the borrower being slightly older in combination with a significantly reduced upfront mortgage insurance premium. Also, if the property value happened to increase the refinance would be much easier.
Reverse Mortgage Pros and Cons
Many people are are not properly informed on how a reverse mortgage can benefit their lives. The Pros and Cons of a reverse mortgage are itemized below. The lists clarify several myths as well.
Stay in your home. You do not have to move out of your home or relinquish your title once you have finalized on your reverse mortgage. You keep your home.
The money is yours to do with as you please.
Your credit score and current income are not considered when applying for a reverse mortgage. The amount of your reverse mortgage loan is determined by the current interest rate, value of your home and your age, which you must be at least 62 years of age or older.
You will have no payments while you are in your home. The principle guideline for the reverse mortgage program is that you remain in your current home. As long as you stay in your current home, you do not have to make any payments.
Your reverse mortgage is not taxable. You do not have to file any tax forms at the end of the year with a reverse mortgage.
The fees of a reverse mortgage may be higher than a conventional mortgage. The cost of the FHA mortgage insurance and origination fees generate the higher costs for reverse mortgages.
There is a cap on the amount of loan proceeds you can receive.
The loan balance gets larger over time and the value of the estate/inheritance may decrease over time.

What is a Reverse Mortgage?
Securing a Reverse Mortgage is like getting an advance on a paycheck — a bank is giving you access to your home equity to use in any way you choose. You retain home ownership and there are no loan payments. However, the monies must be repaid when you no longer reside in the home.
How are Reverse Mortgage Loan Amounts Calculated?
Your loan amount is calculated by using your age, your home value and any outstanding mortgage balance.
Am I Eligible for a Reverse Mortgage?
All titleholders must be 62 years or older and reside in a qualified home. You must also have sufficient equity.
