The disadvantages highlight concerns which seniors have regarding the program, some of these disadvantages are the reasons which seniors do not take out the loan. However, there are other scenarios which make potential customers think twice about a HECM loan.


There are several reverse mortgage disadvantages that you should evaluate before taking out one. You will be paying a higher interest rate than on other loans, have less equity in your home and you may run out of the money sooner than you think. The reverse mortgage is a government insured program which for many years was not accepted in the mainstream media for its high costs and its complexity (no longer the case with it now being a mainstream program) but this does not mean everyone should take a reverse. When considering a home equity conversion mortgage one should be aware of the disadvantages that exist with the HECM program in order to be educated and to make an informed decision.

We also believe that consumers should have the ability to shop around for reverse mortgage lenders, this is why we currently compare top lenders in order to secure you with the most appropriate HECM reverse mortgage. Without this necessary step, seniors are not provided with the full benefits of a reverse mortgage, not to mention that they can easily be tricked or conned into paying for something which they may never receive (most importantly the fees can average to be 50% higher than ours)

Seniors should be careful about their main asset - reverse mortgages might seem clever, but reduce your options should something happen (eg you need to sell your home to finance nursing care)

Testimony of financial breakthrough from GOD through the help of Funding Circle Loan INC. ( OR Call/Text +14067326622)...

Hi I'am Evelyn Russell resident at 808 NE 19th St Oklahoma City, I am a single mother blessed with 2 daughters. For a while now I have been searching for a genuine loan lender who could help me with a loan as I no longer have a job, all I got were hoodlums who made me trust them and at the end they took my money without giving me any loan, my hope was lost, I got confused and frustrated, it became difficult for my family to feed with a good meal, I never wanted to have anything to do with any loan lending companies on the internet again. Not until I met a Godsent loan lender that changed my life and that of my family Through the help of a fellowship member "a lender with the fear of God in him Mr JASON RAYMOND, he was the man God sent to elevate my family from suffering. At first I thought it wasn’t going to be possible due to my previous experience until I received my loan worth $135,000.00 USD in less then 24hours. So my advise to anyone out there genuinely in need of a loan is to contact Funding Circle Loan INC through this official email:- OR Call/Text +14067326622 and be financial lifted.
