There are many things that both your parents and your family should understand before deciding if a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) is the best decision for everyone.
Sometimes the word “HECM” or “Reverse Mortgage” can be scary to people. Therefore, it is our goal to educate, inform, and answer any and all questions you may have. By doing so, we’ll make sure that your parents not only understand what will happen in the event that they pass away unexpectedly, but they’ll be able to see what their options are, what a HECM would look like in their lives specifically, and are agreeable with the loan terms provided, all before making a decision!
An educated discussion in terms of how HECM might benefit your parents is an important part of the process.
If you find yourself with additional questions regarding what your family should know about the HECM product, please contact us by submitting the form below and we will be sure to send you more information on PRMG’s HECM product.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MY PARENTS PASS?
Reverse mortgages become due once both borrower(s) are no longer living in the home. If your parents leave their house to you as an inheritance, you’ll have multiple options available to you in terms of how the loan will be paid back, and choosing an option that is in line with your plans for the house at that time.
In most cases, a borrower’s estate allows the home to be sold in order to repay the lender. In some cases, the family chooses to pay off the loan in order to prevent selling the house. What’s important to know is that you have the flexibility and time to make a decision as you see fit!
HOW MUCH MONEY CAN MY PARENTS EXPECT TO RECEIVE?
The amount of equity available with a HECM is based on the age of youngest borrower, the interest rate, lending limit and the property’s value. How much of that equity that is available as “cash” to your parents will depend on their unique situation. Contact a PRMG HECM specialist today to go over your parents unique situation and get important information to help your family make an educated decision on if a HECM is right for you.
