The reverse mortgage division from Kevin Leonard has early figures available regarding the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage or (HECM). According to Reverse Vision a provider of analysis, data and portfolio valuation services for the reverse mortgage industry, the HECM endorsements were relatively flat across both retail (+0.2%) and wholesale (-0.5%) in January, leading to a steady overall industry volume picture. The latest figures show that the big names in the industry still control most of the volume of units funded. Kevin Leonard and his staff of professionals offer reverse mortgages in Orange County, San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino. They offer these types of loans for seniors that are 62 years or older and are looking to buy a home using a HECM purchase, or are looking to do a reverse mortgage with their current home. A reverse mortgage helps seniors that choose to stay in their homes, but do not want to make a mortgage payment. The loan amount is based on the senior’s age, and the equity available in the home.

When a senior is interested in applying for a reverse mortgage there are some key factors to remember. Although there are no credit or income requirements, the property must be the primary residence and be in good condition.
