Hurry! Reverse changes coming Oct. 2

Mortgage Matters

 

We're short and sweet this week, since something big is happening in the world of reverse mortgage.

On Aug. 29, 2017 the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced changes to the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage program. This speaks to all federally-insured reverse mortgages, and is important because right now there is no other kind of reverse.

Borrowers will see higher mortgage insurance premiums, and reduced reverse benefits, with case numbers issued on or after Oct. 2, 2017. The case number is what ties you to reverse mortgage guidelines, and it cannot be issued before you do your reverse mortgage counseling.

If you've been thinking about taking a reverse mortgage, get on it right now to beat these changes. If you need more information, please phone.
