Is a Reverse Mortgage Right For You?

When thinking about financing options for your home, it is important to understand all the products available.  NexSpring Mortgage Consultants are a great source to go to in order to fully understand what mortgage products are out there for your current situation. A product that often comes up when NexSpring Mortgage Consultants are talking to clients 62+ is a Reverse Mortgage.   

A Reverse Mortgage is a loan for adults 62+ which is insured through the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), and allows homeowners to convert their home equity into cash with no monthly mortgage payments.  Homeowners are still responsible for real estate taxes and insurance.

Just because you are 62+ doesn’t mean a Reverse Mortgage is right for you.  Here are a few things to consider prior to making the decision to begin a Reverse Mortgage.

  1. Do you own your home outright, or do you have a low mortgage balance that can be paid off at closing with the money provided through the Reverse Mortgage?  Reverse mortgages are only available if all existing home loans are paid off in full.
  2. Do you plan on staying in your home long term?  If the answer is no, then a Reverse Mortgage may not be the best fit. You might consider selling your home instead.
  3. Is your home equipped for your needs as you age?  If not, a Reverse Mortgage might be an option as some borrowers choose to use their proceeds to make improvements to their home.

What is a USDA Home Loan, and is it right for you?

If you’re thinking about purchasing a home, it is important to know all your options when choosing a loan product.  NexSpring Mortgage Consultants spend time to fully understand your current situation, and help you choose what loan product option is right for you.  One option NexSpring Mortgage Consultants consider when talking to a client in a rural area is a USDA Home Loan.

A USDA Home Loan is for homes in Rural Areas as defined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  This program allows a borrower to obtain up to 100% financing based on the sales price or appraisal, whichever is higher. It also allows for reasonable closing costs and pre-paids to be financed onto the loan up to the appraised value. There is a low 1% up front guarantee fee financed onto the USDA home loan, along with a .35% monthly premium added to the monthly principal, interest, tax and homeowners insurance payment. USDA home loans also allow refinancing to borrowers already financed with a USDA loan.

The USDA Home Loan allows for more flexible underwriting and credit criteria than other home loan programs. This home loan does have house-hold income limitations as published by the USDA based on house-hold size and the State and County the property is located in.
