How to know if a reverse mortgage is right for you

How to know if a reverse mortgage is right for you

P&N Bank’s Reverse Mortgage Home Loan offers retirees the option to unlock the value in their home to bolster their savings and access cash for day to day or lifestyle expenses.

For some, it provides important funds to increase their retirement savings and help with living expenses. For others, it could be needing money for day-to-day expenses, home improvements, repair or maintenance or to help buy that much wanted caravan or go on that holiday.

How does a reverse mortgage work?

For those with a substantial asset in their personal property, the decision to put the family home, which they know, love and wish to remain in, up for sale to release the equity can be daunting.

A reverse mortgage presents a great alternative that allows individuals to stay in their home, realise its value and access the money they need right now.

A reverse mortgage involves entering into a contract where a person borrows against the value of their home and then receives funds without the need to make loan repayments. Instead, the loan balance is usually paid out when they sell the home to buy a less expensive property, move into aged care or is paid from the person’s estate once the house is sold after they pass away.
