If you have been a homeowner for a good portion of your adult life, you have most likely accumulated a substantial amount of equity in your home. Home equity is one of today’s most reliable sources of funds when a homeowner over the age of 60 needs to pay for in-home care, or a spouse’s memory care. Tapping your home equity can provide large amounts of *tax-free loan proceeds. The Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) is a HUD-insured loan program designed specifically for mature homeowners looking for cash flow and liquidity to pay for care while wanting to avoid taking on a monthly mortgage payment.
If you want to receive the quality of care you deserve, in the safety of your own home, or if you need to access funds to pay for a spouse’s care away from home, we can provide information on this easy-to-qualify government-regulated loan program.
Proprietary “jumbo” equity conversion loans can be an appropriate choice for homeowner needing more money to cover round the clock care, or to free up more cash by paying off a conventional mortgage and ending a monthly mortgage payment obligation. Jumbo conversion mortgages offer significantly higher loan amounts, currently up to $3 million dollars. No monthly loan payments are required as long as loan terms are met.
Home Equity Line of Credit: Available at some banks and credit unions; these are a great way to pay for care on a more temporary basis and if someone in the family can qualify for the loan and afford to make the monthly payments.
Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM): available through licensed mortgage lenders: these are a great way to access higher levels of home equity, easier to qualify for than most other types of loans, is non-recourse (no personal liability) and require zero monthly loan payment. The loan is due when the last remaining borrower moves, sell or passes away, or ceases to pay their property taxes, homeowner's insurance, or HOA dues if applicable. The HECM is one of today’s most flexible financial tools and is designed so that most retirees can qualify for the loan themselves, thereby releasing their family of any additional financial burden. All remaining equity, including future appreciation, goes to the borrower and their estate/heirs.
Grants: You may be eligible for other money depending on income and various factors. We can help you understand other options available to you.
