Is a Reverse Mortgage Right for Me?
A reverse mortgage is a great solution for many, though not all.
In the right situation, tapping into your home equity can be an incredible resource for finding new meaning and maximizing the possibilities of life.
- What are my retirement goals? How close am I to accomplishing them?
- Is my home meeting my needs?
- How long can I live in my home?
- Do i want to leave my home to my kids? Do they want that?
- Would an unexpected expense take me off track?
- Am I still working just for the money? Is that how I want to fill my time?
- Where will I be in 5 years? Where do I want to be?
- What excites me about life? Am I doing enough of it?
- What dreams are left for me to chase? What’s holding me back?
Your retirement years are precious.
What are you doing with them? What could you be doing with them?
