If you’ve reached a certain age and want to generate some extra income for retirement, or to take the trip of your dreams, then you should consider a Canadian reverse mortgage. Different from a home equity line of credit, this is a mortgage loan that you can take out on your home if you are 55 years of age or older.
Think of it as a savings account with funds available for you to utilize in the form of your home.
The terms are simple: you take out a mortgage on your home and use the funds for whatever you would like, as long as you live in the home. The loan can be for up to 55% of your home’s current value, and you need to pay off any outstanding loans secured by your home first. Any money left over being yours to spend as you wish.
Should you decide to move, the terms of the mortgage will come due. Otherwise, you never worry about making a mortgage payment. A tax-free option, this mortgage loan is paid upon your passing, when you sell the home or if you reach a point where it is no longer your primary place of residence.
