Interesting Points About Your Home Value
It’s interesting that few consider what they’ve invested in their homes to the point where the mortgage is paid off. It’s even more interesting that few realize that their home depletes valuable income for taxes, insurance, maintenance, and care.
Don’t let your home be an expense. Make that asset work for you. Let's look at a single example using estimates we've put together based on our own experience. You can use this example to consider what you've personally put into your home.
A $300,000 home may cost up to $850,000 over 30 years. Although the mortgage is paid off, taxes, insurance, and maintenance continue.
In addition to taxes, insurance, and yard card, HSH.com estimates annual maintenance expense at 1% of a home’s value. In this case then, you can plan on $6,000+ per year.
The reverse mortgage ARM gives you a way to draw on the value of the home for maintenance and other needs. It’s insurance that assures that you can age in place.
A reverse mortgage Line of Credit using a variable adjustable rate (ARM) program is a unique and strategic way to diversify and prolong the value of your retirement portfolio.
A reverse mortgage Line of Credit has a guaranteed growth feature on the amount left in your principle limit. This means no matter what the economy does, or how rates change, your line of credit will grow monthly at a rate likely greater than most investments, without risk, and without tax consequence. The longer it sits unused, the larger the line grows.
