You may be interested in exploring whether a reverse mortgage might be a simple way to accomplish your financial goals. It certainly is for thousands of people every month!
Reverse mortgages are government-sponsored FHA insured loans—very similar to a home equity line of credit. The biggest difference is that you're not required to make any monthly payments as long as you are living in your home! A reverse mortgage converts equity into a tangible benefit (cash), giving you a higher quality of life, and peace of mind.
