Home equity is most Americans’ largest financial asset. Learn options for proactive implementation of reverse mortgage strategies for improving portfolio survival.
Home equity is the largest financial asset for all but the wealthiest Americans.
As demonstrated in the Journal of Financial Planning, the proactive implementation of a reverse mortgage strategy – early in the distribution phase – will improve portfolio survival and increase the odds of a successful retirement. As retirement counselors, we need to understand options for helping retired clients appropriately use their home equity if their economic situation requires it, including options for proactive implementation of reverse mortgage strategies for improving portfolio survival.
In this one-hour session you will learn:
- Learn how the FHA’s Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program can work for retirees who have a substantial portion of their wealth tied up in their home equity.
- Learn how an HECM Credit Line can be used to protect against sequence-of-returns risk during market declines to help eliminate the need for portfolio distributions during market troughs, improving the longevity of retirement savings.
- See the modeling of different case studies using an HECM Credit Line and how it can be used to help improve the total net worth that can remain for heirs while meeting the retirement income needs of a retiree.
- Explore a “Purchase HECM,” which is a loan that helps clients purchase their ideal home for retirement without the burden of debt service.
