Many people who are retired or are planning to retire soon have seen the $2 trillion loss in retirement savings over the past 15 months influence their planning for their golden years.
We have a seen an increase in the number of people right here in Arizona who are interested in whether or not the FHA Reverse Mortgage Program (aka the FHA Home Equity Conversion Mortgage program) is a valid option for them.
A reverse mortgage isn’t for everyone, but if interest is any indication, more and more people seem to be evaluating this as a possible solution to help them meet their monthly obligations during their retirement years.
