There Are Qualifications You Must Meet To Be Approved For A New Jersey Reverse Mortgage

In order to qualify for a revere mortgage, you must be at least 62 years of age. You must also have a home that is paid in full or one that has a low balance on the mortgage. You also need to be able to show that you are capable of making your homeowner’s insurance payments and tax payments yourself.

When You Get A Reverse Mortgage You Eliminate Your Need To Make Monthly Payments

The main reason that people choose to get a reverse mortgage is for the major financial benefit it provides. If you are still making monthly mortgage payments, and they are becoming a burden on you, then you can eliminate those payments forever by getting a reverse mortgage.

When You Get A Reverse Mortgage You Can Access The Equity You Have In Your NJ Home

With a reverse mortgage you are able to access the equity you have built up in your home over the many years you have been making payments on it. The difference between a revere mortgage and a home equity line of credit is that with a reverse mortgage you don’t have to make any payments on the money that you borrow. So if you have been wanting to take a trip, make home improvements, or do anything else that requires more money than you were comfortable spending, you can now do these things if you get a reverse mortgage.

You Still Own Your Home When You Get A Reverse Mortgage

After working hard your entire life for your home the prospect of no longer owning it will probably be a terrible one to even think about. Unfortunately, many people think that when you get a reverse mortgage that this is what happens. The truth is that when you get a reverse mortgage you still own your home, and it will remain your home until you decide to leave it.

A Reverse Mortgage Is Paid Off When You Leave Your New Jersey Home

The last thing you need to know about reverse mortgages is that the balance is due when you leave your home. So if you decide to move you can either sell your home to pay off the balance or pay off the balance in another way. If you do decide to sell then any money that is leftover after paying off the reverse mortgage belongs to you. If you pass away the same rules apply, which means that even when you get a reverse mortgage you will still be able to leave your heir’s somethings so that you know that they will be provided for.
