Reverse Mortgage Funding Introduces HECM Annual

Company Expands Product Suite with Annually Adjusting Reverse Mortgage

Bloomfield, N.J., July 2, 2014 — Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC (RMF) today announced it has launched its latest product, HECM Annual, to further extend its product line. This product introduction complements RMF’s existing product portfolio, allowing the company to offer its partners a full range of products to best meet their customers’ needs.

The HECM Annual is similar to RMF’s innovative HECM Max5, introduced last month, in that both loans have a five percent interest rate cap. The HECM Annual applies that five percent rate cap to the company’s first annually adjusting HECM.

The HECM Annual interest rate is tied to the One-Year LIBOR Index and has a lifetime cap of five percent above the initial rate. The loan also features a two percent “interval cap,” ensuring that the rate will neither increase nor decrease by more that two percent in any given year. With the HECM Annual, all payment plans are available.

“We believe reverse mortgages can be a powerful tool for qualified borrowers. This product extension means more options for adult homeowners,” said Joe Demarkey, director of product development, RMF. “In addition to innovative products, which are the cornerstone of our company, we continually review our portfolio against industry standards to ensure we are offering our customers the best options.”

As with other variable rate HECM loans, borrowers can choose a lump sum draw, line of credit, monthly payment, or a combination of these. The HECM Annual is an open-ended loan with no minimum initial draw that has a five percent lifetime cap over the initial interest rate, which is based on the One-Year LIBOR Index.

A More Flexible Home Equity Loan

If you’re 62 or older, there is a home equity line of credit option that offers greater financial flexibility than a traditional Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). It’s called a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) line of credit. 
If you have an existing mortgage or home equity loan you could refinance them with a HECM line of credit and get enhanced benefits, including a flexible payment feature and a line of credit that GROWS when left untouched.
As with any mortgage, you must meet your loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, insurance, and keeping your home in good condition.
