HECM reverse mortgage?

Did you see the "New Senior FHA Staffer Describes the Importance of a Reverse Mortgage Product" article by Chris Clow in Reverse Mortgage Daily? Julienne Y. Joseph, the FHA's new Deputy Assistant Secretary for Single Family Housing plugged the loan from the point of view of having originated these loans before she moved to public service. She told the story of helping an African American couple whose "home was paid for, but they needed a little extra boost to their retirement income and to remain in their home and to continue to live independent self-sufficient lives, they need to find a little bit of help." A HECM loan allowed them to age in place during their golden years. When they passed away and the home was sold and the balance repaid, "there was still a modest amount of equity remaining that was passed on to their adult children."

​"So in my opinion, this is what makes the HECM just a good option for seniors who can tap into the equity of their homes, to allow them to remain" in those homes," said Ms. Joseph.

Passionate About Travel

I was a traveler before the Pandemic. I grew up with the two-week car trip in the summer with my family to the coast, presidential museums, important historical sights and amusements too! I am an AFS exchange student alumnus, having spent a year in Jujuy, Argentina as a son and brother in the Rodriguez family. As an adult I’ve lived and worked in Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Seattle, WA, San Diego, CA, Minneapolis, MN, Chicago, IL, Janesville, WI and am now back in Seattle. My now-husband and I took five RV trips, including a three-weeker from Minneapolis to Provincetown, MA and back. I’ve been to Costa Rica to keep up with my AFS sister and her family over the years. When my husband worked for Marriott International he took me to meetings and conventions in the Caribbean and Mexico. One day he was in a meeting and looked out the window to see me sailing by on a snorkel excursion, complete with Rum Punch in hand! We went sailing together on Dennis Conner’s “Stars and Stripes” racing yacht in St. Maarten where you can take a cruise excursion that includes a race with Canada. We won! Cruising is my favorite kind of travel now and I’ve lost track of how many we’ve taken. The point is we’ve seen The Mediterranean, the Panama Canal, countries all around the Caribbean and the West Coast from Anchorage to Panama.
