This Mortgage Works In Reverse (The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star)
Gary Onks answered more than 30 questions about what reverse mortgages are and how they work during Tuesday's Money Talk$. He is the regional branch manager of Reverse Mortgage USA in Spotsylvania County....


The reverse mortgage is a form of negative amortization, but with a favorable side effect. While you make payments to a lender with a traditional home loan, the lender makes payments to you with a reverse loan.

As payments are made to you, more and more of the equity in your home is converted into debt. That debt grows at an interest rate that is typically one to two points higher than a normal mortgage or refinance.

Social Security To Start Cashing Uncle Sam's IOUs (San Diego 6)
For the first time since the 1980s, when Congress last overhauled Social Security, the retirement program is projected to pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes.


The first issue that arises with this program is the issue of finite equity. Practically speaking, what happens if you outlive the equity in your home? Does the lender take over the home and kick you to the curb?

This is exactly what happened when these loans were first offered. This unsavory result did not stand. The federal government got involved. In most current situations, you are allowed to remain in the home, but payments to you stop.

Another common question is how big will the monthly payments made by the lender be? There are a number of factors that go into the determination. These include the amount of equity in your home, the interest rate charged on the loan, the costs and the fees.

Finally, the biggest factor is the particular plan you choose. You will have a choice of different options that produce different payments and so on. The situation is similar to the one in which you decide upon a mortgage for a home you buy.

What happens if you realize you should have gone in a different direction? Can you refinance your home to get out of the loan? Yes, so long as you pay off the amount due on the reverse mortgage. Make sure to check the fine print for prepayment penalties.

Real estate is beautiful because it appreciates most of the time. After getting a reverse mortgage, can you still tap this appreciation? The answer is usually yes, but you may have to refinance the property to do so.

So what happens when you reach the end of the line? In such a situation, the home is handled just like one with a traditional home loan. Your heirs will either sell it or come up with the money to pay off the reverse mortgage.

In some cases, the reverse mortgage makes sense. In others, it does not. The only way to make a determination is to discuss the details with a financial professional.
