Squeeze can help determine if a reverse mortgage is right for you.
How does a reverse mortgage work?
When you get a mortgage, you pay your lender each month until you own the home. With a reverse mortgage, you get a loan and the lender pays you each month. You may also have the option to take the loan as a lump-sum. How does this work?
If you have equity built up in your home, the lender takes that and converts it into cash that you receive in regular payments. A reverse mortgage is only available to homeowners who are 62 years or older.
How much money can I borrow?
The amount of money you can borrow with a reverse mortgage loan depends on a few factors. The main ones being age, interest rate, your home’s value and the amount of equity you have.
Typically, older borrowers with more equity in their home and low interest rate eligibility will be able to borrow higher amounts of cash.
In addition, how you choose to receive your loan money (lump sum, line of credit, monthly payments) can factor in how much you receive.
