The Reverse Mortgage For Purchase Money Page

69-year-old Alice decides to sell her home and downsize. She sells her home for $325,000 and after $18,000 in closing costs and paying off a $30,000 HELOC balance has $277,000 remaining. However, she has fallen in love with a new patio home for $400,000. She knows she can’t afford it because she cannot afford a new mortgage payment plus the HOA dues on her SS and pension of $1,850 per month. But what if she didn’t have a mortgage payment*?...

The outline you see above compares someone using a regular “forward mortgage” to buy a home to using a “reverse mortgage for purchase” to buy the same home.

I use this in the 2-hour continuing education class I teach to real estate agents because it paints such a clearpicture of the benefits to the buyer who wants to get a better home than they otherwise might be able to. The “forward mortgage” leaves the buyer with no cash and a monthly payment of $658 for the rest of her live. The “reverse Mortgage” loan leaves her with $51,000 left in her pocket and NO MONTHLY MORTGAGE PAYMENT. Of course she still has to pay her own property taxes and homeowners insurance and maintain the home, but this is case no matte what loan she gets.

In addition to the benefits for the buyer, the agent also wins because the buyer is able to purchase a more expensive home with a reverse mortgage than they otherwise could.

The Reverse Mortgage For Purchase, (also called RM4P and H4P), Is a win-win for everyone involved and every real estate agent should know about it and how it works to better serve their older clients.

I absolutely love what I do - working with senior homeowners to help them live a more comfortable, flexible and secure retirement. I have the absolute best customers in the world, and even though I worked in the forward mortgage business for a number of years, I could never go back to doing conventional loans. I'm a 100% reverse mortgage specialist.
