Reverse Mortgage.

What is a Reverse Mortgage?

A reverse mortgage is a product available to Canadian homeowners aged 55 and older who are wishing to access their home equity. This means that you are able to access your home equity without the need to sell your property.  Depending on certain factors, you might be eligible to borrow up to 55% of the value of your home.

A reverse mortgage is not the same as a traditional amortized mortgage where each mortgage payment repays a portion of principal and interest. With a reverse mortgage, your mortgage isn’t paid-down monthly, instead balloons. In other words, when you decide to sell your home, your mortgage balance will be greater than the initial amount that you borrowed.
