Reverse Mortgages


Reverse Mortgages ~ Counseling - Part 4

Reverse Mortgage - CounselingReverse Mortgage Counseling

One of the wonderful things about reverse mortgages, is that everyone obtaining a reverse mortgage must go through counseling. Counseling is a time of education where you can ask as many questions as you like. You can also uncover some things that maybe you did not think about.  Counseling must be done before you can obtain a loan.

In your session you will learn about alternative options to a reverse mortgage. You will also learn about the expected and estimated costs to obtain a reverse mortgage. It is great that this safeguard has been put into place to protect seniors from lenders that do not have intentions to work ethically with them.

You can get the name of a local agency to conduct this session from your reverse mortgage lender. If you do not have a reverse mortgage lender, you can also call AARP's toll free number at 1-800-209-8085, or HUD's Housing Counseling service at 1-800-509-4287.

We hope you find our future reverse mortgage posts informative as well. Stay tuned.
