What is a reverse mortgage?

A reverse mortgage is such a world-beating product because it reverses the growing problems facing so many seniors today who are worried about the diminishing size of their retirement nest egg.

Rising inflation and negative stock growth has left some retirees in a particularly sticky situation and forced to consider selling their cherished homes.

But there is an alternative.

As long as you have equity in your home, a reverse mortgage will enable you to convert it into a potentially life-changing new income stream.

Retirees who are at least 62 years of age can apply.

Approved customers can relax in the knowledge that they don’t have to sell up and can instead start making plans for a more comfortable and buoyant future.

There are a number of different ways that homeowners can be paid including a lump sum, monthly installments or a line of credit - even a mix of all three.

The loan has many great features - one of the best is that as long as the terms are met, there is no need to repay it until either the homeowner sells the residence or the last surviving borrower passes away.

Housing in Palm Desert over the last 12 months* has grown an impressive 24% to an average of $594,566 (

Palm Desert is scattered with homeowners who have already taken advantage of a reverse mortgage - there are 2,438 of them. And 431 have bought one in just the last 12 months*.

About Palm Desert, California

Once known as Old MacDonald Ranch, the area can also be seen on some old maps referred to as “sand hole”.

It became known as Palm Village by the 1920s when date palms were planted.

But it was still little more than an army training base for African warfare in the early 1940s until development began in earnest in 1948.

Cliff Henderson opened the Shadow Mountain Resort that same year.

By 1951, the city had changed its name to Palm Desert and its destiny as a sunny escape for frostbitten east coasters was cast.

Some arrive and never leave.

It's next-door neighbor, Indian Wells was incorporated in 1967 and hosted its first tennis tournament 20 years later.

The Indian Wells Masters now has the reputation as the “fifth Grand Slam”.

Palm Desert is one of California’s fastest growing cities.

Its population has swelled from a modest 11,000 in 1980 to its present level of an estimated 53,000 by 2019.

Besides an abundance of golf and tennis courts, Palm Desert is home to the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens.

There’s a great four-mile hike climbing 1106 feet on the Bump and Grind Trail with stunning views of the city.

And the El Paseo Shopping District is affectionately known as the Rodeo Drive of the Coachella Valley.
