Home Equity Conversion Mortgages/ Reverse Mortgages
A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM)/Reverse Mortgage is an FHA-insured loan specifically designed for seniors age 62+, and can be used to access your home equity and turn it into cash that can be used in a variety of ways to improve and find greater security in your retirement years. A HECM/Reverse Mortgage could eliminate your mortgage payment*, allow you to remain in your home while still owning it, cover the rising cost of healthcare, and more. It may also give you the option to downsize, relocate closer to friends and family, or move into a home that is more desirable to you. You have spent years building up your home equity. Now is the time to let your home start paying you!

What People are Saying
My reason for doing the HECM was to free up some cash for repairs/small projects around my home without dipping into my 401k-type retirement. I had been delaying due to not wanting to deduct from my retirement principal. It worked well for that purpose and I am happy with my decision. As to Kathy and her help, not enough can be said about her advice, help, knowledge, energy, and concern for her clients. She is the best one could hope for.
