Using Home Equity to Close the Gap for a New Generation of Retiree’s.
The good news is we’re living longer. Unfortunately, the challenge is that with longevity comes cost and 3 client questions. Will I outlive my money? How can I add longevity to my retirement funds? How can I either create or increase my “rainy day” fund so it will be there when I need it?
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has made significant changes to their Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program over the last 2 years and those changes have led to a renewed interest and place for a HECM, as an integral piece of the retirement puzzle. Independent studies by Leaders in the financial field have shown that incorporating a HECM as a piece of the retirement puzzle, can greatly alleviate those concerns.
In this seminar we will review the basics of a HECM, the FHA changes, and just how and where a HECM can assist in answering those 3 questions using up to date real life scenarios.
Ask yourself these questions: How can I protect my client against future long term care needs? Do my clients need additional income? What is, and how can my client use a “Standby Line of Credit”? Can my Client refinance their conventional mortgage with a HECM? Can my client use a HECM to “rightsize” to a new home? We’ll answer these questions and more to give you an understanding of who and what to look for in determining which of your clients can benefit most by incorporating a HECM as part of their retirement puzzle.
