Reverse Mortgage Information

Here are some reasons a reverse mortgage can be a fantastic solution for many families hoping to help their kids and grandchildren get ahead.

Becoming a homeowner in BC is increasingly difficult especially for young people trying to buy their first home.

Easy to Qualify
Reverse mortgages are mainly qualified on the amount of equity in your home and your age. It’s not about your income.

Optional Payments
You can gift money to your children or grandchildren without requiring monthly payments. Or you can choose to pay back similar to a regular mortgage, and you can always pay annual lump sums or complete payout at any time.
