Reverse Mortgage

A reverse mortgage is a type of loan where the homeowner withdraws a portion of their equity but doesn’t have to repay the loan until they leave the house.

With a reverse mortgage, the lender makes payments to the homeowner. The homeowner gets to choose how to receive these payments and only pays interest on the proceeds received. The interest is rolled into the loan balance so the homeowner doesn’t pay anything up front. The homeowner also keeps the title to the home.

LOAN TYPES

Different Types of Reverse Mortgages 

Lump Sum

Get all the proceeds at once when your loan closes. This is the only option that comes with a fixed interest rate. The other five have adjustable interest rates.

Equal Monthly Payments (annuity)

For as long as at least one borrower lives in the home as a principal residence, the lender will make steady payments to the borrower. This is also known as a tenure plan.

~

Term Payments

The lender gives the borrower equal monthly payments for a set period of the borrower’s choosing, such as 10 years.

Line of Credit

Money is available for the homeowner to borrow as needed. The homeowner only pays interest on the amounts actually borrowed from the credit line.

+

Monthly Payments + A Line of Credit

The lender provides steady monthly payments for as long as at least one borrower occupies the home as a principal residence. If the borrower needs more money at any point, they can access the line of credit.

*

Term Payments + A Line of Credit

The lender gives the borrower equal monthly payments for a set period of the borrower’s choosing, such as 10 years. If the borrower needs more money during or after that term, they can access the line of credit.
