With the rising cost of living, home prices have soared. If you are over the age of 62, you can still take advantage of the equity in your home with a jumbo reverse mortgage. Patrick Kerwin in Dallas, TX, can walk you through the process. His high quality experience and partnership with AAG advantage all work to benefit his clients.
The development of proprietary reverse mortgage loans was a natural outgrowth of HECMs. They were designed for and continue to serve owners of higher-value homes — those exceeding FHA loan limit guidelines — which allow borrowers to access more of their home’s value. For example, Jumbo Reverse mortgage takes into account home values of up to $10 million.
As a best practice, most jumbo reverse mortgage lenders offer borrowers some of the same consumer protections as those available with a HECM. For example, the AAG Advantage Jumbo Reverse Mortgage Loan is a non-recourse loan just as a HECM is, meaning neither you nor your heirs will have to pay the difference if the loan value exceeds the home’s value when the mortgage becomes due.
Since jumbo reverse mortgage loan payments aren’t FHA-guaranteed products, borrowers don’t have to pay upfront or ongoing mortgage insurance premiums, which can produce substantial savings over the life of the loan.
Although jumbo reverse mortgages offer owners of high-value homes many advantages, protections differ from HECM protections. Therefore, prospective borrowers of jumbo reverse mortgages need to be clear about what these protections are.
