Virginia HECM Introduction and Senior Housing Guide

How does a reverse mortgage work in the state of Virginia? That’s an excellent question and one that you definitely want a good answer to before you decide if a reverse mortgage is a right move for you. The main goal of a reverse mortgage is to allow people who are 62 years of age or older to get from under the burden of their monthly mortgage payments. Whether you are currently retired, disabled, or plan to retire soon, making your monthly mortgage payment in this type of situation is often difficult for many people. That’s what makes a reverse mortgage such a wonderful option for so many people. Instead of having to find a way to make a monthly mortgage payment each month your payments are eliminated forever. On top of that, you can also access the equity that you have built up over the years so that you can live life on your terms.

If I Get A VA Reverse Mortgage Does That Mean I No Longer Own My Home?

One of the biggest concerns that people have about reverse mortgages is the mistaken belief that if you take this path that you will no longer own your home. This is absolutely not true. When you get a reverse mortgage it is simply a type of loan, but just a loan that you don’t make payments on until you decide to leave your home. Nobody will ever try to get you to move out because your home will remain legally your home for as long as you live there.

Can I Really Have Payments Made To Me From A Virginia Reverse Mortgage Company?

In addition to alleviating your need to make those burdensome monthly mortgage payments, a reverse mortgage will actually pay you money. You can pull money out of the equity you have built in your home to cover expenses, make repairs, pay bills, or just enjoy it. It’s your money, there’s no reason at all that you shouldn’t be able to use it when you need it.

What Happens When I Leave My Home?

When the day comes for you to leave your Virginia home you or your heirs will have the option of either paying back the money owed on the reverse mortgage or selling the home to pay off the reverse mortgage. If the decision is made to sell your home, then the proceeds from the sale will first be applied to the money owed on the reverse mortgage. Then the remaining funds from the sale will be released to you or to your heirs. So even if you choose to get a reverse mortgage you can rest assured knowing that your heirs will still receive a good portion of their inheritance in many cases.

Reverse Mortgages Offer Solutions To People That Are In A Financial Bind

If you are 62 or older these should be your golden years. These should be the years where you travel, spend time with grandchildren, and enjoy life. What these shouldn’t be are years where you struggle with a mortgage payment. With a reverse mortgage, you can eliminate that struggle, while also giving yourself the money you need to truly embrace and enjoy your golden years.
