Trust is the Key to a Reverse Mortgage
At Citizens Lending Group, we believe strongly in consumer education. Financial transactions such as reverse mortgages should be taken on only after the borrower has been able to get answers for all of their important questions.
Therefore, when a homeowner schedules a meeting with us, we always suggest having family members present, so that different viewpoints can be considered.
For any loan process to work correctly and accomplish the homeowner's goals, all individuals in the discussions have to operate from a position of trust. Citizens Lending Group has more than 50 years of experience in the Pennsylvania, California, and Florida mortgage industry. We have an AAA rating with the Consumer Business Alliance, and we strive to help each customer understand and meet their goals when it comes to a reverse mortgage.
Our Goal: Providing Reliable Reverse Mortgage Information
A reverse mortgage is a loan that homeowners can qualify for if they are 62 or older where the equity a homeowner has built up through the years can be converted into funds that may be used for any number of uses including medical coverage or regular living expenses. In a reverse mortgage, the lender often makes regular payments to the homeowner rather than the borrower making payments to a bank, credit union, or other lender throughout the course of the loan, which is how a reverse mortgage gets its name.
One of the major differences between traditional loans and reverse mortgages is this: the homeowner does not have to pay back the borrowed funds until they leave the home or sell the property. It is, however, the responsibility of the homeowner to keep property taxes, HOA fees, and insurance current.
In keeping with our mission of providing reliable consumer information, Citizens Lending Group invites homeowners and their family members to talk with a loan officer first when considering a reverse mortgage loan, to ask some of the important questions. We also encourage you to find your home value and other figures with our reverse mortgage calculator.
To get the planning process underway, here are a few items to consider:
- Borrowers must be at least 62 years old.
- The Housing and Urban Development agency (HUD) sets financial eligibility levels for reverse mortgages.
- Most single-family dwellings qualify, as do properties with up to four units - the FHA sets property standards.
- Reverse mortgages are meant to keep the homeowner in their home, and the property must be the homeowners primary residence.
- Most of the fees and closing costs associated with a reverse mortgage loan can be part of the loan total.
