The New Reverse Mortgage Formula: How to Convert Home Equity into Tax-Free Incomeby Tom Kelly
Many seniors have trouble making ends meet after retirement. Often their homes are their most valuable assets, but they can't access the equity they've accrued unless they sell. If you find yourself in this position, you might face the dilemma of having to sell your home. Thankfully, the reverse mortgage offers seniors the option of remaining in their homes with no mortgage payments.
Reverse mortgages permit seniors to convert part of their home equity into tax-free income-even if they're still paying on the mortgage. Designed specifically for seniors, these specialized loans let you tap into your equity and use the money for any purpose. Safe and legal, these loans can never cost more than the value of the home, and the loan doesn't have to be repaid until you, or an heir, sell the home.
