Proprietary Mortgage Counseling
Is a Reverse Mortgage Through a Private Lender Right for you?
A proprietary reverse mortgage is a type of loan offered by private lenders and financial institutions. Credit.org provides counseling covering various proprietary products.
The Basics of Proprietary Reverse Mortgage
The loan allows homeowners as young as 55 years of age (depending on the state you live in), to convert a portion of the equity in their homes into tax-free income. The loan is repaid when the homeowner sells the property, moves out permanently, or passes away. With a proprietary reverse mortgage, the loan amount is typically based on the value of the property and the age of the youngest borrower. The funds can be used for any purpose.
