Moving Forward…In Reverse

Laurie MacNaughton [NMLS 506562]

A couple years back my friend Robert took his 17-year-old daughter, Sarah, to college. Robert said the whole weekend Sarah walked a couple steps ahead of him, for fear someone would actually suspect she had PARENTS.

Funny thing about life: we all have parents. And, though we haven’t aged a day since college, we do have to admit that when we were home over the holidays Mom and Dad were looking a bit, well, older. And so was Aunt Louise. And for that matter, so were the Johnsons next door.

Fact is, we’re living in a graying nation. And, fact is, only one third of Americans have put by anywhere enough savings to carry them through their retirement years, according to a 2013 study by the Washington, D.C.-based National Institute on Retirement Security.

So for the other two-thirds, the FHA-insured Reverse Mortgage can fill the gap, allowing our parents, our neighbors, our friends, to live healthier, safer, more financially-secure lives at home, with independence and dignity.

Reverse Mortgage was never intended to meet every financial goal in retirement. However, it can create a financial safety net, an extra financial “bucket,” to draw upon in the retirement years.

Give me a call and let’s talk about how the FHA-insured Reverse may help you and your loved ones. And together, we can all move forward…in Reverse!
