Reverse Purchase Mortgage – Ocean Hills Homes

If you are ready to sell your current home and purchase a more suitable retirement home, a reverse mortgage may be able to help you.  The reverse purchase mortgage  program is available for San Diego North County buyers who are at least 62 or older.  With a reverse purchase mortgage you make no mortgage payments for the rest of your life.  There are no income or credit requirements with a reverse mortgage.  Let’s take a look at an example of how it works.

Example of Purchase Reverse Mortgage

Buyers plan to move to San Diego North County to retire and downsize.  They now want a single level home with lots of amenities  and Ocean Hills is the perfect place.  They want to use the sales proceeds from the home they just sold and want to buy a home and not have any more mortgage payments for the rest of their lives.

This will be tough to do as  I estimate the proceeds from their sale to only be around $200,000.  I contact Ken Keranen of HomeServices Lending to see what type of program is available.
My clients have found a home in Ocean Hills Country Club they really like for $450,000 (3 yrs ago $600k).  We all sit down and run the numbers on this home using a Reverse Mortgage Purchase.   Here is what we came up with:
Purchase Price                           $450,000
Reverse Mortgage Funds        $262,800                        
Cash Required to Close           $187,200
My clients takes $187,200 of the $200,000 from the sale of their old home combined with the $262,000 reverse mortgage proceeds from Wells Fargo to purchase the new home for $450,000 and will never have any monthly mortgage payments as long as they live in the home!
