Surviving Silver Divorce – Helping Both Parties to Benefit from Homeownership

Divorce among those 65 years and better is rising faster than other age groups at a time when the financial impact can be most difficult from which to recover.  There is a silver lining though.  For homeowners age 62 and better, the FHA-insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) — HUD’s revamped version of the former reverse mortgage — can help this select group of divorcees divide housing wealth without decimating savings accounts.  This unique financial tool can assist in the division of assets without either party taking on a mortgage payment, becoming a renter, or being left without access to other available retirement funds.  The HECM can be used as a buy-out tool for the homeowner wishing to keep the family home, and as a purchase tool for the homeowner seeking to relocate. Each party can be a homeowner and no one has to assume a monthly mortgage payment. Bring your friend, your advisor, your neighbor to learn program guidelines and how much money is available.
