A post-crisis first: Performing jumbo reverse mortgage bonds

Waterfall Asset Management is marketing $571 million of bonds backed by jumbo reverse mortgages that were originated before the credit crisis and are still performing.

It’s the first deal of its kind with a public credit rating since 2007, according to Kroll Bond Rating Agency.

Reverse mortgages allow borrowers to pull some of the equity from their home without paying a monthly mortgage payment; no payments are due until the entire loan is repaid. In the meantime, accrued interest is added to the balance of the loan.

Over the past several years, there have been a number of securitizations of reverse mortgages that had defaulted and were in the process of being liquidated; the loans backing these deals were also insured by the Federal Housing Administration.

By comparison, the 915 loans backing Cascade Funding Mortgage Trust 2018-RM2 are what’s known as “proprietary” reverse mortgages; they are not insured by the FHA. Waterfall Asset Management acquired them over a period of eight years from various originators.

My deceased father has a reverse mortgage - the amount owed is less than the value of the property?

I would like to take out a mortgage to repay reverse mortgage. Do I have to take out mortgage for value property or just what's owed on the reverse mortgage? I'm 1 of 3 heirs and we are to divide the assets equally. But the only asset is the house.


You would need to pay off all liens on the property, before you can transfer it into your names. A mortgage is a lien.
