What is a reverse mortgage?

It might sound like you are going backwards but a reverse mortgage is an incredibly powerful loan product that has the potential to catapult you out of the financial doldrums.

If you own your own home but are concerned whether you have enough savings for your retirement, a reverse mortgage might well be the answer to your prayers.

It gives homeowners the ability to convert the equity they have in their home into cash, usually by way of a supplementary income stream.

It means any thoughts of having to sell your prized home can be forgotten.

The loan is available to anyone 62 years or older, with approved applicants being able to breathe more easily, comforted by the knowledge they can remain in their home.

They may even be able to consider splashing out a little on some home improvements or enjoy a much-needed getaway.

Homeowners can be paid in a number of different ways including a lump sum payment, monthly installments or a line of credit – even a combination of all three.

One of the great aspects of this loan is that as long as the terms are met, there is no need to repay it until either the homeowner sells the residence or the last surviving borrower passes away.

The cost of housing has boomed in recent times and Sherman Oaks homeowners will be delighted with an 18.3 percent jump over the last 12 months taking average prices to $1,449,562 (

Already 4,897 people in and around Sherman Oaks have a reverse mortgage with 623 signing on in the last 12 months.
