Reverse mortgage rates can be fixed or adjustable depending on your preference. Although many homeowners prefer one reverse mortgage to another, it is important to consider all the facts before choosing your reverse mortgage rate.
Which reverse mortgage interest rate is the best choice?
There is no simple answer to this question because it depends on other elements of the reverse mortgage transaction. This only time you would have access to the fixed reverse mortgage rate is when you choose a lump sum as your disbursement option. If you decide that you do not want a lump sum, you can choose from a variety of adjustable reverse mortgage rates depending on the type of disbursement option you choose. Use the chart below to compare fixed vs. adjustable reverse mortgage rates.
Fixed Reverse Mortgage Rate
Adjustable Reverse Mortgage Rate
- There is a monthly tenure option that allows you to receive a monthly payout for as long as you live in the home.
- You can exceed the amount you would receive with a fixed rate and your disbursement option can be changed.
- The line of credit disbursement option has a growth feature that allows you to have access to more money in the line of credit by extending additional credit to accommodate for the expected home appreciation rate.
