New Reverse Mortgage Rules Can Ease Concerns With Borrowers

The industry is shifting boundaries, and for the better. The new reverse mortgage rules are helping to alleviate previous concerns regarding these HECM home loans. This sudden turn of events is helping to remove any stigmas that are associated with these loans.

According to a report from the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, reverse mortgages are considered as a viable option for households that lack the necessary retirement income to secure their lifestyle after leaving the workforce.

Any type of home loan is not without its risks, but no longer are reverse mortgages in the spotlight for this. Over the past three years, since the new rules were enacted, borrowers and lenders alike are closing more deals in confidence.

New underwriting criteria mandates these simple changes: A borrower must be able to demonstrate the financial ability to maintain the home, and pay the property taxes and insurance on it. Following a third-party credit counseling session, homeowners over the age of 62 can borrow against the equity in their primary residence.

The key benefit of these loans is really found in the ease of the approval process. Since the restrictions are different, and since the loans are purely based on the equity of a secured asset, no income or credit verification is required to get people approved. This veers greatly away from any other type of home loan, and makes these loans plausible for lower income families that are seeking to secure their retirement.

According to the aforementioned report, the new rules put a positive spotlight on reverse mortgages, with the ability to permanently reduce default rates by up to 50%, a number that’s unable to be touted with virtually any other kind of bank or home loan.

As demand for reverse mortgage home loans increase, and as refreshing reports like these surface, it’s good to know that older Americans have options for retirement that are outside of 401(k) investments. As America moves away from the previous pension model, many citizens have struggled to form a solid retirement plan. But in the future, this will likely result in a reverse mortgage because of its security, and because of the fact that it eliminates the existing monthly mortgage payment while putting cash in the pocket of the borrower.

  15. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

  45. why does your article say there are no income or credit requirements for reverse mortgages , since FA, there are absolutely credit and income requirements when underwriting these loans ..

  46. Wow. Where to begin. There are so many inaccuracies in this article it would take a book to respond. Ask one simple question — with all loan interest rates at an all time low, why are interest rates on federally insured reverse mortgages at an all time high? The simple answer — the obscene amount of money in yield spread premiums that the loan officer/broker is making. How about a commission of over 12%+ on the amount of the loan. Too many snake oil salesmen still in the game. Want to loose your house — go with a reverse mortgage!
