Over the years, our house has appreciated in value quite a bit. Since retiring, living on a fixed income hasn’t been hard, but there isn’t a lot of money left at the end of the month. We have two kids, and we wanted to help them buy their first homes, and in this Vancouver housing market, that’s no easy task.

We didn’t think there was a chance for us to refinance our house, but a friend of ours told us about Nicolle, we gave her a call and she was able to help us help our kids. We used money from our house to give each of our kids 20% down on their houses. We’re so happy we could help our kids now, when they needed it most!

About Vancouver

Reverse Mortgage Broker in Vancouver

 Close to 2.4 million residents call Vancouver British Columbia home and 29 percent of this population are over the age of 55.  Many in this age group are homeowners who purchased their homes when property values were much lower. Today these same people may find themselves struggling day to day as the cost of living has risen dramatically over the last ten to twenty years.

People have found themselves in a situation where they are house rich yet cash poor.  Why not turn the tables and let that hard earned investment work for you for a change?

Homes are paid off or very close to it, yet their monthly income is inadequate to meet the standard for life that they would like to enjoy in their twilight years.  In some cases, their children may need help with paying down student loans, a down payment for their first home, or even a business start-up.  There are a multitude of reasons why it makes sense to go with a Reverse Mortgage using your Vancouver home as security.

 What Exactly Is A Chip or Reverse Mortgage?

 A reverse mortgage is a loan secured by the equity in your home that requires no payments for as long as you or your spouse remain in the home.  Hence the name ‘reverse’ mortgage.  When you sell your home the mortgage plus accumulated interest is paid out in full.

How Much Can I Get? 

The first question people ask when looking into borrowing against their home is, how much can I get for a reverse mortgage?  The specific amount is based on your age and that of your spouse, the location and type of home you have, and your home’s current appraised value.  You can receive up to 55% of the value of your home.

Do I Qualify for A Reverse Mortgage?

Your mortgage broker will look at a few factors to see if you are a candidate for this type of loan:

  • Your and your spouse must be no younger than 55 years of age
  • What area you live in determined by postal code
  • Type of dwelling ie single family, townhouse, condo
  • Current appraised value
