“In my opinion, you left out the most obvious argument against the high cost of a Reverse Mortgage: if the Reverse Mortgage is a "need" rather than a "desire" then the cost to sell is significantly higher than a Reverse Mortggage. If it is not a "need", then the senior should not participate in the first place.Most seniors who are considering a Reverse Mortgage cannot qualify for a HELOC or a refinance since they lack sufficient funds to meet their current monthly obligations. A Reverse Mortgage for my clients has been their best choice and believe me, they are most grateful to have the option of not selling their home and living in a "facility".”

“Thank you Jack ! Not for me because I am a Reverse Mortgage Loan Officer but thank you for all folks who's lives can genuinely benefit from a Reverse Mortgage and are scared only because of the half told stories out there. Paul Harvey would be proud ! Someone is still telling "The Rest of the Story" I have had the priviledge to see lives changed for the better because they got a Reverse Mortgage. I am glad this conversation has come out though, I think it helps to uncover those practices that may abuse a system. You are now a super hero for seniors! Defending the good, uncovering the bad and just plain telling it straight. Excellent balance brought to the table. Thank you !”
