What is a Reverse Mortgage?
A reverse mortgage is a unique loan that allow homeowner(s) 62 years of age and older to draw on the equity in their home, which is paid to the homeowner(s) in a variety of payout options. One aspect of this loan is that it does not require repayment until the homeowner(s) no longer reside in the residence or does not comply with the loan program obligations such as paying property taxes and insurance, and maintaining the property to FHA guidelines.
A reverse mortgage can be an effective tool for giving seniors additional cash to live on using the equity in their home. However, it is not a decision to be taken lightly. It's important to work with an experienced originator who can help you assess your unique situation to determine if a reverse mortgage is right for you.
Created by The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) this federally insured loan helps those in the senior population meet their financial needs and may ease money worries for greater peace of mind.
Prior to applying for the loan, it is required that you are made aware of the terms and conditions of the loan through sources provided by HUD. Contact the Housing Counseling Clearinghouse at 1-800-569-4287to obtain the name and telephone number of a HUD-approved counseling agency. You may also contact our office and we will provide you with the list of HUD-approved reverse mortgage counseling agencies.
Getting A Reverse Mortgage
"My house has been my home for most of my life. I can't leave, but I can't afford to stay."
You live in a home that you've watchedincrease in value for years.You find it difficult keeping up with billsand healthcare expenses. You're faced with a dilemma: sell the house—your home, which really doesn't have a price tag—or continue to live in it and watch your financial burden increase. Now imagine this dilemma resolved.
Enter the Texas Reverse Mortgage.
A reverse mortgage allows you to draw on the equity in your home without having to sell it. A "reversal" of a conventional mortgage where you would pay monthly principal and interest payments, a reverse mortgage is a loan that may allow you toreceive monthly payments. The loan is repaid when you either sell your home or no longer live there as your principle residence. As a borrower you must continue to pay property related fees, taxes and insurance, and must maintain the home in good condition. You can use the cash payments as you wish: to supplement your retirement income, make home improvements, pay bills, or vacation. It's all up to you.

Vicki Cheairs, HECM Loan Specialist - NMLS #543256
A longtime resident of Houston, TX., Vicki was born and raised on Naval Air Stations before returning to Texas, where she attended local Houston schools and Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Tx.
As a 15 veteran of the traditional mortgage industry, Vicki was introduced to Texas Reverse Mortgage's by a senior who had closed on a reverse mortgage years before. Further research helped her better understand the source of the senior's excitement and Vicki became equally as 'sold' and committed to helping others better understand the various options within the reverse mortgage.
Realizing Texas Reverse mortgage's had been misused and misrepresented by originators who encouragedclients to remove all available funds, Vicki committed to educating clients on making the funds available through a line of credit while protecting the equity. Her committment to representing a solution appropriate to the needs of her clients made her one of the top producers of reverse mortgages here in Texas.
Vicki proudly represents the Texas Reverse Mortgage throughout Texas but enjoys meeting face to face with clients in and around the Houston area.When not meeting with clients, she canbe found speaking at local colleges, conducting seminars for church or civic groups, or sharing her excitement for the reverse mortgage with CPA's, financial planners, home builders, remodelers or anyone interested in examining the benefits the reverse mortgage may have in the life of a senior.
For Vicki, the best part of her job isgetting to know and interacting with a variety of people. "I not only become friends with many of my clients, "she says, "but I also become close to their families as well." In her free time, you'll most likely find Vicki volunteering for her church or supporting various school and extracurricular activities of her two daughters. She has lived in Houston, Tx for more than 35 years. "I saw how a reverse mortgage could possibly change someone's life and I wanted to be a part of it."
