What are my options?Lump Sum:-You will receive all of the cash three days afterclosing in the form of a check or wire transfer-Fixed Rate Program-Youll know exactly how much you owe at alltimes
Line of Credit1) Tenure: set amount of money each monththe rest of your life.2) Term: set amount of money over a certainperiod of time. (For example: $100/mo for 15years)3) Draw: you only draw money as needed.*This is an adjustable rate program

What happens when I pass away?The property still goes to your heirs!The heirs have 12 months of no payments to decide to sellthe home or they can sign the title of the property over tothe lender.If there is still equity remaining in the property it goes toyour heirs as an inheritance.If the outstanding balance is more than the homes worth,your heirs ARENT responsible for the difference.
Can I ever be kicked out of the home? NO!BEWARE: you are responsible for paying your propertytaxes. If you dont the county can foreclose on yourproperty!
What if my home needs repairs?No problem. One of the great features of the Reverse isthat it allows for "set asides"Set asides allow you to close your loan, but a portion of theproceeds are held back to pay the contractor for any workthat needs to be done to the property.Set asides cant be more than 15% of the homes value. Soon a $100,000 home it cant be more than $15,000.
Can I ever get out of a Reverse? YES!If for whatever reason you want to refinance outof a reverse into a traditional mortgage youabsolutely can.You can also payoff the loan without penalty ifyou decide you want to.
What if I owe more than the home is worth? Not a problem!You will never be kicked out of your home for owing morethan your home is worth.The reverse is insured by the FHA. That insurance protectsyou and your heirs from ever owing more than the value ofthe home.
What does my interest rate mean?Your interest rate determines how much moneyis added to the balance of your loan.For instance if your interest rate is 5% thenyour loan balance would grow 5% each year.
