Atlanta, GA (Vocus) September 26, 2010
Generation Mortgage Company, a jumbo reverse mortgage lender, announced a California couple has been the first to close one of its new Generation Plus® jumbo reverse loans. The fixed-rate jumbo loan product was introduced in June and is available to seniors owning homes that appraise between $500,000 and $6 million.
''The Generation Plus loan caters to an underserved segment of senior homeowners living in higher-valued homes,'' said Scott Peters, President and CEO, Generation Mortgage Company. "We’re very pleased with the quick market acceptance of our jumbo product as it demonstrates that Generation Mortgage is filling a genuine market need among seniors seeking to obtain the highest payout possible for retirement income on one of their most valuable assets.”
Newport Beach, CA residents Michael and Barbara are the borrowers now enjoying the proceeds of the first Generation Plus loan. ''Getting this jumbo reverse loan gives new meaning to the phrase, ‘house proud,’'' says Barbara. ''Until now, we were unable to leverage our home equity. This was a huge frustration as we did not want to move and we had all this money tied up in home equity. The Generation Plus loan has been the perfect solution allowing us to access retirement income, stay in our home, and gave us peace of mind.''
Barbara and Michael started researching jumbo reverse mortgage lenders as soon as they were eligible at age 62. Both are retired and wanted to obtain a reverse mortgage to assist with financial planning for retirement income. Tapping into their home equity would allow them to invest for their personal goals of providing financial security to their heirs. For Raymond Denton, a Generation Mortgage brokerage partner with iReverse Home Loans who worked directly with Barbara and Michael, this is the first jumbo reverse loan he has originated in two years.
''Most homeowners I’ve spoken with are strategically re-evaluating their estate and are considering using a jumbo reverse mortgage to re-distribute their assets in a manner that promotes their legacy. The Generation Plus loan may allow consumers to reduce inheritance taxes and provides maximum financial benefit to heirs,'' said Denton.
Available in most states throughout the company’s national footprint, the Generation Plus jumbo reverse loan may be obtained on primary residential homes, including FHA-approved townhomes. Payout is completed at closing and may be used for any purpose, including covering medical expenses or making home repairs or improvements.
