While we hope that you choose Quontic Bank as your preferred reverse mortgage lender, we want to provide you information to help you make the best decision. Let us guide you through the differences between lenders and lending options that help make your finances during retirement easier.

Why choosing top reverse mortgage lenders matters

Reverse mortgages are geared to elderly property owners supplement their finances and make retirement easier. They work by paying you from the equity that you’ve accumulated in your home over many years. In addition, you don’t need to pay these loans back on a monthly basis while you continue to live on the property as your principal residence and abide by the mortgage obligations.

There are many reverse mortgage lenders to choose from. Here's how to understand the differences between individual providers and make an informed decision.

The reverse mortgage lending industry

Your lending options are extremely varied. For instance, your local or state government may provide a single-purpose reverse mortgage, or you might seek a proprietary reverse mortgage from a reputable financial institution. In many cases, homeowners pursue the security associated with Home Equity Conversion Mortgages, or HECMs, which are Federal Housing Administration's reverse mortgages program that are insured by the federal government and HUD.

According to one Congressional report by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, or CFPB, in the early days of HECM programs, the number of loans made each year was under 10,000. The National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association says that during the 2015 fiscal year, lenders made more than 58,000 HECMs. Although this growing market is only a small fraction of the entire mortgage sector, it still represents an important resource for aging Americans.

Difference between lenders

CFPB data reveals that reverse mortgage and HECM lenders include many corporate entities with diverse business models. For instance, most lenders underwrite and fund loans, but several also provide origination services, such as processing your application, arranging the loan terms and helping you make important retirement decisions.

Some lenders focus exclusively on selling reverse mortgages. These companies often sell your loans for profit following their creation. Compare this to seeking a loan from a bank that operates on a wholesale or retail lending model and also offers you additional financial services.
