There are a number of reasons, why reverse mortgages have become popular with the American senior citizens. Whatever the reason whether needing money to finance a home improvement, pay off a current mortgage, supplement their retirement income, or pay for healthcare expenses, many older Americans are turning to reverse mortgages.

Senior homeowners appreciate converting part of the equity in their homes into cash without having to sell their homes or take on additional monthly bills. In a reverse mortgage, you receive money from the lending institution and donít have to pay it back for as long as you live in your home. However, the loan must be repaid when you sell your home, die, or it is no longer your principal residence.

Reverse mortgages primarily help homeowners who are house-rich but cash-poor. They can continue to stay in their homes and still meet their financial obligations. To qualify for most reverse mortgages, you must be at least 62 and live in your home. The proceeds of a reverse mortgage are generally tax-free, and many reverse mortgages have no income restrictions.

These advantages are attractive by themselves and changing lifestyle is making this type of financing the smart option for many in India. In fact once the issues regarding tax clarified by the concerned authorities it is expected that this sort of financing will catch on like wild fire with the citizens of the country.

Many Kerala apartment and flat owners are house-rich but would like to supplement their incomes by mortgaging their equity without having to bother about repayment during the latter part of their lives.
