FREE Mortgage Rate Quote

You’ve invested in your home, and it has paid off. You live in a house that you love, where you have built a lifetime of memories. But did you know that that investment could pay off in more ways than one during your retirement?

If you are age 62 or above, and you are looking for a more comfortable living during your golden years, you can augment your income using a reverse mortgage.

What is a Los Angeles Reverse Mortgage?

A reverse mortgage in LA makes it possible to convert equity you have invested in your home into cash. That cash is available to you to spend as you choose. Borrowing against equity in your home through a reverse mortgage does not mean you need to move out. You can remain in your home for the rest of your life.

How You Can Use Your Reverse Mortgage in LA

There are literally endless possibilities for what you can do with reverse mortgage income. There are no restrictions.

Some ideas might include:

Remodel your kitchen, install an addition, add energy-efficient systems, or make other upgrades to your house.

Create or grow an emergency fund.

Help a grandchild pay for college.

Take care of medical expenses, automotive costs, or other emergency bills.

Buy a new car.

Put a down payment on a second home.

Pursue a lifelong goal or dream.

Take a trip.

Benefits of Taking out a Reverse Mortgage in Los Angeles

Your decisions concerning how you spend your reverse mortgage income are 100% yours. Your lender has no say.

Because multiple disbursement options are available, you also can control when and how you receive the money.

You get to remain in the home even though you are borrowing against your equity.

Income received through a reverse mortgage is commonly not taxed. To find out whether yours will be or not, your tax advisor should be consulted.

The reverse mortgage doesn’t need to be paid off until a maturity event occurs (such as when you sell the house, or when the last borrower on the mortgage passes away).

Are You Eligible for an LA Reverse Mortgage?

If you meet the requirements listed below, you might qualify to take out a reverse mortgage and enjoy all of its benefits.

At least one borrower on the home loan must be age 62 or above. It is not necessary for all borrowers on the mortgage to meet this requirement.

You must be the home’s owner, and demonstrate that you own 50% or more equity in it. It has to be your primary residence.

Before applying, you will need to be up-to-date on property taxes, homeowners insurance payments, and any other home maintenance payments.

Other factors which may impact your eligibility include your credit score, income and tax history.

I cannot recommend Shannon highly enough! As an independent contractor, I knew getting a mortgage would be a little difficult, and Shannon supported me and helped make it work every step of the way. If I ever need brokerage services again, she'll be my first call!read more

We’ve worked with Shannon and her team twice and both experiences were stellar. The first was buying our first home and she walked us through the process and explained everything along the way to help us get quickly up to speed. The second time we were going for a refi in maybe the most turbulent mortgage market ever as COVID hit. She guided us through all the hurdles and worked double time to satisfy all the lenders new requests. We got a rate a full percent lower. I can’t recommend this team highly more

Shannon Christenot is the most amazing lender we’ve ever had. As a matter of fact this is the second time we’ve used Shannon to do a mortgage with us. She held our hand every step of the way. She made the whole process stress-free as well. And when we were coming down to the wire to finish our escrow within the 30 days she got us an extension Without even asking. Now we are locked into a very low rate. We’ve saved hundreds of dollars per month for the next 30 years. We cannot Thank Shannon enough. I would recommend Shanon to anyone thinking of buying a home or more

Working with Shannon was a real pleasure. She was always available and got back to me promptly with any necessary information. I was able to refinance my mortgage at a rate considerably lower than another larger company quoted who I had started working with. I look forward to working with Shannon again and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a competent and decent mortgage more

As first time home buyers we had no idea what we were doing. We were pre-approved by a well known company but quickly discovered that we absolutely did not want to work with them for the actual mortgage. Shannon was recommended to us by a friend and I called on a Saturday morning. By Saturday evening we were well on our way to buying a house (we closed three days ago!). Shannon made navigating these foreign waters so easy, answering all of our newbie questions with patience and grace. Plus she got us a fantastic rate. We are so grateful for Shannon and can not recommend her enough. WE OWN A HOME!!read more

I always go back to Shannon because she is one of the best in the business! I've worked with Shannon over the years, however, she outdid herself in my last deal. She was so professional, caring and effective that my clients were comparing everyone else in the deal to Shannon. More importantly, we were ready to fund in less than two weeks. Once again, Shannon affirmed my belief in her that she always rises to the occasion. Thank you for being the best!read more
