7 Example One 7 Dena and Dennis - Ages 70 and 72 Dena and Dennis have lived in their 2-story home for nearly 30 years. They orginally loved the idea of a split level home and when they were younger that was fine. However, Dena recently suffered a fall that left her fairly immoble after hip sugery. That fall was their reasoning for looking into a single story home. Their current home was valued at $375,000 and they owned it free and clear. Their predicatment was to figure out how to purchase a new home while maximizing the amount of cash available to cover an new healthcare costs associated with Dena s fall. Their Solution: They sold their home for $375,000, which netted them $352,500 after Realtor fees and concessions. They found a beautiful single story home, close to the grandkids, for $200,000. The best part was that it was in a sub-division with a Home Owners Association that takes care of the yard maintenance. Using the age of the youngest borrower, they were able to use a purchase reverse mortgage and come to closing with adown payment of roughly $75,000, which allowed them to keep $277,500 available for medical needs and fun. This was all accomplished without creating a new monthly mortgage payment.
8 Example Two 8 John and Paula- Ages 65 and 66 John and paula, recently retired, are very active, both physically and socially. They re both avid golfers and are active members of thier club. When they decided to purchase their first home, they knew that they wanted to be in a community with a golf course and an active social scene. They gave their Realtor their specs and he was able to find them a beautiful home in their price range with all the amenities they were searching for. They had spent most of their lives savings and had $120,000 set aside that they were willing to use as a down payment. With that, they were able to purchase a home for $308,000. The reverse mortgage covered $188,000 and their down payment made up the difference. They have never been more happy, not with just being first time homebuyers, but knowing that they never have to pay rent again and they will never have a mortgage payment as long as they occupy the home as their primary residence. As a side note, they had been paying $1,300 a month for rent. Not having that monthly output has afforded them to take several trips they previously thought not possible.

As with any purchase transaction, we would suggest that a home inspection be completed. Be sure to ask your Realtor for suggestions for inspections. Two very important things will happen with your inspection. One, you will be able to assess any issues with the property before you own it. Second, if there are any issues, you will have a bargaining chip to negotiate a lower purchase price or ask for the repairs to be completed. More Information available online: www.

13 What are the Steps to get a Reverse Mortgage? The application process for a reverse mortgage generally takes about days from start to finish. Step One. Application The application authorizes the lender to begin the application process but the lender cannot incur any costs on your behalf until Step 2 (counseling) is completed. The application is not binding and can be canceled at any point during the process. The application will specify the reverse mortgage fees, interest rates, and loan amounts. Step Two. Counseling The lender is not legally permitted to incur any costs on the applicant s behalf (such as ordering the appraisal) until the applicant has submitted a signed HECM Counseling Certificate. This is proof that the applicant has completed the mandatory counseling session with a HUD-approved counseling agency. The counseling can be completed before or after the initial application in most states. How much down do you need? Calculator is at
14 Application Process 14 Step Three. Appraisal The appraisal establishes the value of the applicant s property. The reverse mortgage appraisal must be conducted by an FHA-approved appraiser (not all appraisers have this approval) and it must follow a specific FHA format. Step Four. Approval While the appraisal is being done, MLS Mortgage will work with Title and Escrow to gather the required items for the underwriter. The underwriter will review the file and issue conditions. Once all conditions have been satisfied, the file will go to closing. Step Five. Closing Once a clear to close is issued, MLS Mortgage will schedule a closing date with you. At the closing you will sign the closing documents. Once signed, the paperwork is returned to the lender for funding. After the loan funds, you now own your new home. MLS Mortgage will be with you throughout the whole process, available to answer any questions or help with anything you need. Your job is to call us and we ll handle the rest.
