Lucas built a lifestyle he’s passionate about backed by the strength of his housing wealth.
For illustrative purposes, let’s look at a hypothetical situation. As a nature lover and avid sailor, Lucas always saw himself retiring on the water. But with children and grandchildren near his current home, he put off moving away from his community a few more years and steadily saved for relocation. When his timeline was threatened by a knee injury and its expenses, Lucas searched for a path forward.
HomeSafe by the numbers
The right tool for the dream.
When Lucas used HomeSafe to pull out cash at the same time as eliminating monthly payment obligations*, he was able to tackle several major goals—covering unexpected medical costs without impacting his investments and purchasing a second home on the lake.

Loan terms potentially available to a borrower are based on factors such as loan product, home value, mortgage payoffs, location, borrower age, interest rate and payment option selected, and borrower’s credit profile.
The reverse mortgage borrower must meet all loan obligations, including living in the property as the principal residence and paying property charges, including property taxes, fees, hazard insurance, as well as homeowners association fees, if any. The borrower must maintain the home. If the borrower does not meet these loan obligations, then the loan will need to be repaid.
A reverse mortgage is a loan that enables homeowners and homebuyers age 55* or older to convert some of their home equity into cash or a line of credit. Some loans also let homeowners finance a new home purchase. With a reverse mortgage, you make no loan payments. You continue to live in and own your home.
Unlike a traditional home equity loan or home equity line of credit (HELOC), you don’t have to repay a reverse mortgage until the home is sold or the last surviving borrower (or a non-borrowing spouse who meets certain requirements) no longer lives in the home, as long as you meet loan obligations. The homeowners must maintain the condition of the home and stay current with property taxes and hazard insurance.
