Reverse Mortgage Specialist

Reverse Mortgage Specialist
  • Price - $38
  • Available Nationwide

Buy Now

Many seniors have demonstrated a preference for remaining in their homes and communities. However, many may be challenged because most homes are not designed and equipped for decreasing mobility and other impediments to aging-in-place. Given the recent recession, many older adults may have diminished or depleted the savings that they were planning to use for retirement, and this exacerbates the problem of finding financing for retrofitting their homes.

Others may want a second home near children and grandchildren, near favorite activities, or in climates more favorable during certain times of the year. Many seniors think they cannot buy the properties they want because they do not have a steady income that is sufficient to make mortgage payments or adequate available savings. For these seniors, a reverse purchase mortgage may be an excellent tool for them to purchase the homes they desire, without qualification requirements and with no payments for life—all without having to pay for the homes in cash.

What You’ll Receive (3 online lessons):

  • Features and Types of Reverse Mortgages

There are currently more than 44 million seniors in the U.S. – many of whom own their homes.
