Reverse mortgages are all the rave and just might be what seniors in Atlanta need to pay bills or to do some home renovations without breaking the bank. Seniors over the age of 62 who own their home or have a low mortgage balance and who plan to live in their home might want to consider this type of mortgage, which is government insured. While reverse mortgages can provide money for home repairs and money for homecare, reverse mortgages allows seniors to live in their homes with no payments. The Federal Housing Administration Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (FHA HECM) allows a borrower over 62 years old to borrow against the equity in their home that has limited outstanding debt. Because reverse mortgages tend to be expensive, seniors in Atlanta who are considering this type of loan should do research to make sure they understand the advantages and disadvantages of this mortgage instrument.
