Researching Reverse Mortgage Programs on the Web News

Q: Is it easy researching reverse mortgage programs on the web?

A: It’s easy if you know where to look. It actually becomes a problem only when you don’t know how to use an Internet browser.

So, if you are a senior and have reasonably good Internet surfing and typing skills it should be easy. You just need to know where you can find information on existing reverse mortgage programs.

Wiki, Anyone?

Wiki, no doubt, is the only reputable source of accurate and in-depth information on the web. Wiki means “quick” in Hawaiian. Wikipedia is actually edited by humans and practically anyone and everyone on the web can paste information there.

So, sure, you can find information on reverse mortgages on Wikipedia, but it’s doubtful you can find a program there. It is after all just an online web based encyclopedia, and a good one at that. When you search for reverse mortgages on Wiki, what you can find is general information on the subject.

On The News, Then?

So far, the most popular news source is Google News. You can search for any news you want instead of flipping through some papers. However, when you type in “reverse mortgage” on the search bar, what you can find is bad news (and more bad news) on the reverse mortgage industry.

Skip the news if you want to get a reverse mortgage loan quote.

How About Mighty Google?

While Google is not the only search engine out there, the fact is many reverse mortgage loan companies are spending their time trying to get noticed by Google. So, it is good advice to type in “reverse mortgage quote” on the search bar. You will only find information on reverse mortgages when you type in “reverse mortgage loans”.

Simply put, reverse mortgages are money lent by a bank to a homeowner for mortgage on a home. The program loan is only repaid in the event that the homeowner dies or moves out of the house. Majority of reverse mortgage loans are offered only to senior citizens who at least 62 years old and have equity on their homes.

The maximum mortgage amount is determined by four major factors:

  • the house’s fair market value,
  • the homeowner’s age,
  • the mortgage’s qualified interest rate,
  • the county where the borrower is based and that county’s maximum allowable loan amount

The older the borrower is, the bigger the loan amount. With $250,000 in equity, a 62 year-old is expected to get $110,000 while a 76 year-old could have $149,000.

Throughout the United States, reverse mortgage programs are regulated by the HUD and FHA.

Taking out a reverse mortgage is not necessarily the kiss of death to the home, but the seniors will have less equity on their homes moving forward. In most cases, however, the used equity is offset by appreciation on their homes.

Although there are many reasons why seniors negotiate for a reverse mortgage program on their homes, the bottom line is financial. If you are a senior thinking of way to increase your cash flow for some reason, it pays to consult with a reverse mortgage specialist first.
