Inside Reverse Mortgage Alternatives: QuantmRE

“Many of these people don’t qualify for reverse mortgages. They’re in their late 50s, and they find themselves in a position where they’re close to retirement age, they have – if settled in Southern California – potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars of equity.”

How it works

Sullivan described for RMD the ways that QuantmRE’s formula works. “We take two-and-a-half times the percentage of the value of the property that you release as the percentage of the increase in value,” he said. As an example, if a potential customer has a million dollar home and releases 20 percent of its value, they release $200,000. If ten years go by and the value of the home increases to $1.1 million, then the sale of the home is the point at which QuantmRE will collect its return on investment.

“[After the sale], you pay us back from the sale proceeds the original $200,000, and we use our multiples. So, we take the 20 percent, which was the value of the home that you released, we multiply that by 2.5, so we would take 50 percent of the increase in value, which would be $50,000. That would be our return on investment,” Sullivan said.
