Reverse Mortgage Attorney Miami - Florida Reverse Mortgage Specialists
A reverse mortgage, or generally a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, allows you to tap the equity in your home or condo without having to sell or take out another type of loan. Reverse mortgages can be a very useful tool to access the equity in your real estate without having the burden of monthly payment transactions. Although many reverse mortgage lending companies will promote their services as FREE LOAN MONEY FOR LIFE, or NO LOAN PAYMENTS FOR LIFE or similar marketing, a potential borrower must consider the decision very carefully. Here are some basic but important questions potential reverse mortgage borrowers should ask themselves before applying with a reverse mortgage lending company:
- Do I really need the reverse mortgage money right now?
- Is having the reverse mortgage loan money important enough to make it worth the high loan fees?
- Are there less expensive ways to obtain the needed funds?
- Do I fully understand the reverse mortgage process and costs?
