Reverse Mortgages Issued Under New Rules Outstrip Old, Age Gap Narrows

More promisingly, a shift toward older borrowers seen in last month’s data seems to be moderating, according to Baseline Reverse founder Dan Ribler.

“It looks like the trend was more an anomaly than a trend, and it looks like the good news is that younger borrowers are not being scared away by the program changes,” Ribler told RMD. “The impact is not age-specific, which is excellent.”

In addition, while the HECMs originated under the new rules show a greater prevalence of lower adjustable-rate margins — validating industry concerns about fiercer margin competition in the post-October 2 landscape — the typical margin seems to be settling in the 2.5% to 2.75% range.

It’s true that some lenders have offered low margins, including a few loans at 1%, but Ribler said that hasn’t taken hold across the industry.

“Somebody did it, but I don’t think the market has reset to a 1% margin,” he said.

So far, among loans securitized in January and February, reverse mortgages originated under the new rules have an average maximum claim amount of $317,485, as compared to $348,551 for those issued under the old, 2014-era principal limit factors.

Retirees will face tough decisions with reverse mortgages

The millions of Americans who haven’t saved enough money for retirement still have a potential safety net: their home equity. But recent changes to reverse mortgages mean seniors and their families may have tougher decisions to make.

Reverse mortgages allow people 62 and older to tap their home equity without having to pay the money back until they move out, sell the house or die. Borrowers can take payouts as lump sums, monthly checks or through a line of credit that can be tapped at will. The reverse mortgage debt grows over time, typically at variable interest rates, and may deplete all the equity in the home, leaving nothing for heirs. If the home is worth less than the reverse mortgage balance, though, borrowers and their heirs can’t be held responsible for that loss.

The loans earned a bad reputation as commission-hungry salespeople preyed on seniors who didn’t understand the loans’ complexities or who had financial problems so severe that they quickly burned through the money. Another problem was unscrupulous advisers who urged people to use their equity to buy questionable investments, including expensive annuities.
