Purchasing a home with a Reverse Mortgage

Published by

Did you know that you can also use a reverse mortgage to purchase a home? It’s not just for those who are at least 62 years old and currently own a home. So why would someone want to use a reverse mortgage to buy a home?

Well there could be any number of reasons. One of the main reasons is some people in retirement or the Golden Years just aren’t so certain about the way things have been going economically these days. They could afford to buy a home with cash – Either to downsize because they don’t need as much room or they are moving here to Florida from up north. But paying for it in cash may not leave them with any security or a safety net. Depending on their age and the purchase price of the home, with a reverse mortgage they could buy a home with just a percentage down. This way they can hold some of the cash back and use for emergencies, cost of living, etc. They still would have no monthly mortgage payment. Just as if they would have purchased completely with cash. This can be an attractive option to a lot more people in the coming decade. This will be especially true with Baby Boomers.
