  2. 2. Learn More to Earn More A reverse mortgage tool to help you sell more homes and get more listings. The reverse mortgage purchase program is largely unknown among Realtors so you can dazzle your older clients by informing them of this great new program! Many retirees would love to move but feel stuck because they don’t have the resources to get into a newer, more suitable home. Living closer to family members, moving to a single level home, moving closer to services… the reasons are many for older people to move.
  3. 3. The HECM for Purchase is designed specifically to help growing numbers of retirees purchase new homes. It allows people who are at least 62 years old to purchase a new primary residence and take out a reverse mortgage in a single transaction. By doing this, they save money, reduce costs, and finance a home they may otherwise be unable to afford. This easy loan program can open up a whole new market and give you an advantage to close more deals on higher value properties.
  4. 4. Reverse Mortgage Basics    A reverse mortgage or HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage) is an alternative mortgage option for borrowers age 62 or older. The key feature is NO REPAYMENT IS REQUIRED until the last remaining homeowner leaves the home permanently or the home is sold. It is basically a negatively amortized loan as the interest and mortgage insurance charges add on to the balance over time. A reverse mortgage is non-recourse, the borrower or their heirs will never have to pay more than the value of the home when the maturity event takes place. Owner or heirs receive remaining equity. They are very much like conventional loans. A deed of trust is recorded as the security instrument, borrowers must keep property taxes paid and home maintained. Homeowner remains on title.
  5. 5. Benefits for your Clients Not having to spend all of their liquid cash on the purchase  Being able to afford a higher valued home without exceeding their budget  Avoiding strict income and credit score requirements to qualify for a traditional mortgage  Not having to make monthly payments for as long as they live in their home 

  7. 7. Benefits for Realtors! Expand into a growing senior housing market (8,000 people are turning 62 every day in the US) Obtain more listings as you help seniors either downsize or upgrade accordingly Example SELL A CLIENTS HOME Sell your clients existing home $300,000.
