Seminar Series: Reverse Mortgages in Retirement Planning
As many Americans have much of their wealth tied up in their homes, it seems likely that we will see more tapping of home equity in retirement. This seminar covers a range of options for tapping home equity, but focuses mostly on reverse mortgages. How they work, how much equity can be tapped, what are the fees involved, what distribution options are available, and maybe most important how to minimize the costs and maximize the benefits of the reverse mortgage.
