If you are thinking about applying for a reverse mortgage, there are some questions you will want to ask yourself first about your health.
Many senior homeowners can stay in their homes safely for the rest of their lives. Granted, there may be a need for sporadic in-home care, but for the most part, the Reverse Mortgage borrower gains the benefit of staying in their comfort zone and making no mortgage payments for the remainder of time spent in the home.
A “maturity event” may occur, not allowing continued stay in the home. In that event, they may need to/want to sell the home. This is certainly allowed with a Reverse Mortgage, allowing the homeowner to cash out of the home and perhaps go to assisted living or other arrangements.
Below are two key questions to ask about your health and your home to help you figure out if you are likely to stay there for the rest of your life.
Bottom line? You can stay in your home for the rest of your life so long as you stay up to date with all home maintenance, property taxes and homeowners insurance. The reverse mortgage may not come due during your lifetime, as long as you are there.
If there comes a time you believe you will need to sell your home some years from now, be aware that your reverse mortgage will come due when you take that action. There is a 12-month period in which you can sell, or perhaps decide that it is not yet the time to take that action.
