Marco Island Reverse Mortgage
Marco Island Reverse mortgage specialists at Core Mortgage Financial have extensive expertise in the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (known as HECM).
Reverse mortgages are designed for seniors over the age of 62 and seeking to pull equity out of their existing home or purchase money transactions. NO monthly payment is required and the payment obligation is deferred until the home owners is no longer living. The borrower is required to pay their own taxes and insurance as the lender will not set up an escrow account. One distinct advantage is credit, income and in refinance transactions assets are not a factor in qualifying for a reverse mortgage.
The first type of Marco Island reverse mortgage is the standard refinance program. The borrower can elect to take a lump sum payment or use a line of credit loan.The line of credit you only pay interest on the monies used almost like a checkbook. The lump sum payment is where the borrower gets the full amount at closing. You can also elect to have monthly payment option where you get a monthly payment almost like an income check.
The purchase money transaction is where the buyer uses a reverse mortgage to purchase a home. The amount required for down payment is calculated by the zip code of the property being purchased and the date of birth of the homeowner.
The normal calculation is 45-50% down payment. It does vary so please make sure to contact Core Mortgage HECM specialists for the exact amount. The borrower is required to provide evidence that the borrower has the assets to close but income and credit are not a deciding factor.
The underwriter will take the income and assets into consideration while making a decision to approve the loan but will not base their decision solely on income and credit.
