Ask about my book "Why a Reverse Mortgage?"One example is a lady who came to us for a mortgage to move from her long-time home. 6 years later, she lost her job and had not moved. A Reverse Mortgage got her money to eliminate a mortgage payment, pay off credit card bills, additional monthly income, and catch up on deferred maintenance. In total, about a $3,700/month change in cash flow. I've never been in the house, but I'm told it has some extra stuff. A Reverse Mortgage is one way to pay for your services and other services the homeowner needs.
