Are Reverse Mortgages Right For You?

Reverse Mortgages

These loan programs are available to customers over 62 years of age to help improve financial security, quality of life and ease of mortgage payments. The total amount of money you can receive from your house is limited and determined by the age of the youngest borrower or eligible non-borrowing spouse, the value of the house, and the interest rate at the time of closing. 


Money Received is Not Taxable

Because the money received by the borrower is not income, there are no income taxes to pay and the money received can be used for any purpose.

Homeowner Maintains Ownership Of The Home

Since the owner retains all ownership rights, any appreciation in the value of the home belongs to the homeowner. Because the borrower retains ownership, they must comply with the loan terms which include occupying the home as their primary residence, paying taxes and insurance, and maintaining the property.

In many cases, despite the interest being charged on the outstanding balance of a reverse mortgage, the homeowner’s equity in the property actually grows over time. This is possible because interest is only charged on the outstanding balance of the loan, whereas the rate of appreciation of property values operates on the full value of the home.

Calling Peter at Animas Mountain Mortgage was one of the best decisions I made during the process of buying a home in the Durango area. Living out of state, I was a bit nervous about the process, but I was soon at ease with Peter's guidance. He walked us through the entire process, made sure we were staying on top of all the important deadlines, and was always available to answer our questions. His expert knowledge and local experience with realtors, title and insurance companies made the process a breeze; everyone I spoke to knew about Peter and the excellent service he provides at Animas Mountain Mortgage. I would absolutely work with Peter again and would recommend him to my family and friends. Thank you Peter!

Peter was extremely helpful and provided a lot of timely information. This wasn't our first mortgage experience yet we learned more while going through the process with Peter's guidance. We were more comfortable and confident in our decisions because of his experience and advice. Additionally, he shared tips for us to keep in mind in the future that will both make things easier and save us money.

Peter worked with us to get a mortgage in record time (seriously, less than two weeks) for a purchase we wanted to make that was time sensitive! It was the easiest purchasing process we've ever had with clear directions for what we needed to provide and frequent communication about how things were going. We will never use another mortgage broker.

Peter was excellent to work with. As a first time home buyer, I didn't know what I was getting into, especially in this highly competitive market. He provided tons of support along the way, answered never ending questions and was incredibly patient and encouraging after many failed attempts. Couldn't have asked for a better person to rely on.
