Don't take our word for it. Hear it first hand.

“I recently refinanced two different properties through Dennis. He found us the best programs and made sure the process was as simple as possible. Dennis was very attentive throughout the approval and closing process, something that sets him apart from many of the mortgage brokers I dealt with in the past. I will absolutely go back to Dennis for any future mortgage needs.”

“This is my first and possibly my last review, I am only writing this review because of my great interactions with Dennis. I am a real estate developer in North San Diego County and I deal with mortgage brokers on a regular basis. Since working with Dennis on my own home I have referred him out to countless friends and family. He is knowledgeable about these products, he is quick to respond and most importantly he follows through. Top-level service!! I highly recommend Dennis.”

Frequently Asked Reverse Mortgage Questions

  • All borrowers must be 55 years or older
  • Home must be owner occupied as the primary residence
  • Must be able to pay property taxes, required homeowners insurance, and maintain the property

A reverse mortgage is typically insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). Reverse mortgages provide access to funds by using your home’s equity. One key reason for C2 Financial Corp. to offer this type of mortgage is that it allows seniors to get cash while staying in their homes without making loan payments.

We understand that staying in a familiar environment becomes more important in your retirement years. Often there’s no income source, and unfortunately, there’s not always someone or a resource like a government agency to care for you as an old citizen. In any case, your home is one possession potentially available to be leveraged to help your situation. Understanding this, we offer borrowers the opportunity to stay in their homes without a monetary catch.

Imagine living in your home without a traditional monthly mortgage payment, or instead enjoying monthly loan proceeds from the years you’ve invested in your home. A reverse mortgage is a unique mortgage designed for seniors 55 and older. You may enjoy access to the equity in your home and the freedom and comfort of the home you’ve known for so many years. It’s your home, now you can put it to work for you.

Imagine living in your home without a monthly mortgage payment and enjoying monthly cash inflow. A reverse mortgage allows you to access the years of investments you’ve made your home loan. A reverse mortgage is a unique mortgage designed for seniors 55 and older. It allows them to access their home equity and enjoy the freedom and comfort of the home they’ve known for so many years.

To become eligible for a reverse mortgage, you must be at least 55 years old and own your home. You must have equity in the house to pay off any outstanding balances, and your home must be occupied as your principal residence.

All applicants are subject to a financial assessment to determine their financial capacity and willingness to pay obligations and monthly mortgage payments as part of the qualification process.

The amount of money that a lender will loan depends on how old you are at the time of closing, how much your house is worth, the total amount of liens, and interest rates. The payoff of your existing mortgage and mandatory obligations along with the payment option chosen will affect the amount of money you will receive. HUD limits borrowers to using 60% of the available money (after closing costs & fees) in the first year. The remaining funds are accessible beginning year two. This maximum disbursement limit set by HUD allows for the GREATER of:

60% of the Principal Limit (amount of money available to the borrower in all years of the loan) in the first twelve months of the loan from your closing date OR…
The sum of Mandatory Obligations (existing mortgage payoff, tax liens, closing costs, mortgage insurance premium) plus 10% of the Principal Limit. This total cannot exceed the total Principal Limit at the time of loan closing.

There are several different options to choose from. You can take the money in a lump sum (up to HUD’s first-year maximum withdrawal)*, set up a line of credit, monthly payment, or a combination of all three. In the first year, the Line of Credit or monthly Tenure Payments or monthly payments cannot exceed 60% of the Principal Limit. After the first year, the available Line of Credit or Tenure/Monthly payments will be increased when applicable.

* Fixed interest rate reverse mortgages only allow for the Single Disbursement Lump Sum payment plan.

The fees and cost of a reverse mortgage are based on a number of items. For example, an origination fee is paid to the broker/lender, a MIP (mortgage insurance premium) is paid to the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) on the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), an appraisal fee, a flood certification fee, a document preparation fee, title, settlement, and escrow fees. All costs are clearly shown on the Good Faith Estimate (GFE). Monthly servicing fees could apply.

  • Single Family Residence
  • Condominiums (must meet FHA guidelines prior to obtain the Reverse Mortgage)
  • PUD – Planned Urban Development
  • Manufactured homes (must meet FHA and Lender guidelines)
  • 1-4 unit properties

It’s the Loan That Pays You!

The reverse mortgage in San Diego CA was initially created for newly widowed wives. Managing household financial obligations in those days was onerous without their husbands. The financial constraint was often too much, and without skills or an income source, women could struggle to make ends meet. The reverse mortgage was introduced in 1961 and has since gained popularity.

In 1961, Nellie Young made history by getting the first reverse mortgage loan made possible by Nelson Haynes of Deering Savings & Loan. Nellie’s husband was Haynes’ best friend. When the high school football coach died, Haynes decided to help his friend’s widow by designing a reverse mortgage loan with her in mind. In 1988 the bill for this program was approved and signed by President Ronald Reagan. 10 years later the HECM program was made official by the HUD Appropriations Act.

In 2009, people finally got the chance to become homeowners without being drowned in monthly payments. The loan limit for reverse mortgages began at less than $200,000 and has since increased to $726,525.
You can use a reverse mortgage in California in several ways. If you have financial goals you would like to achieve before or after you retire, getting this loan may be extremely practical.

While the proceeds you receive from a reverse mortgage are typically not subject to individual income taxation, you will need to consult your tax advisor.
