Let Your Home's Worth Take You Further
Traditionally known as a reverse mortgage or Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), a LifeWise Mortgage is a federally insured home loan that allows you to eliminate monthly mortgage payments (except for taxes and insurance) and convert part of your home's equity into cash.
The LifeWise Mortgage represents the safest and most popular HECM mortgage on the market - a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) HECM - which is federally insured and regulated by the FHA to protect homeowners and their heirs.
The proceeds from a LifeWise Mortgage generally are not subject to income tax or capital gains because you're not selling your home. The homeowner retains full ownership and there are no restrictions on the use of the proceeds. The mortgage does not affect Social Security benefits.
Homeownership obligations and rights (e.g. taxes, insurance, upkeep, etc.) do not change. You can sell, remodal or add-on at any time after the closing of your loan.
When none of the borrowers are remaining in the home, the loan is due. You, your family or your estate can sell the house and pay off the debt, just like any other loan on the property.
