Laguna Shores Resort…where you can build your Dream Home, purchase a beachfront home or condo using a Reverse Mortgage

 By Lannette Phipps

You must realize by now that Rocky Point is soon to “take off” again, meaning real estate prices will soon be on the rise and inventory will be dwindling. This due mostly to worldwide press Puerto Peñasco has been receiving about airline flights starting in June 2013, a new Convention Center, spectacular whale watching and even a spot on a TV show called “International House Hunters”.  Now is the time you need to purchase a home, condo or lot at Laguna Shores Resort while the prices are still low and sellers are willing to negotiate. Many of you can purchase property by securing a loan, using cash, your IRA or a Reverse Mortgage. You can find a detailed article on using your IRA to purchase a home at Laguna Shores Resort on their website at www.lagunashoresresorts.com. But I am going to tell you about Reverse Mortgage’s because I knew nothing about them and I suspect many of you have never heard of a Reverse Mortgage either.

The Nitty-Gritty Details…

 The Home Equity conversion Mortgage (HECM) is FHA’s reverse mortgage program. It is a safe plan that was designed to give older Americans greater financial security. A “RM” allows you to pull out a certain portion of your home equity and the money can be used for whatever you wish. You can receive the money in one lump sum or fixed monthly payments and do not have to repay the loan until the collateral property is sold or vacated. The difference between a second mortgage and a home equity line of credit, is that you must have adequate income to qualify for the loan. You must make monthly payments on the principal and interest. A reverse mortgage PAYS YOU and there are no monthly principal or interest payments.
