Riverside Reverse Mortgage Question? Why is HUD taking over my loan? - 01/27/11 07:36 PM
Riverside Reverse Mortgage Question? Why is HUD taking over my reverse mortgage? Over time, the loan balance on a reverse mortgage increases. This is due to accrued interest and may also be due to line of credit withdrawals, or payments (loan advances) made to the borrower. A part of the security built into the product for the benefit of the lender is that when the principal balance of the loan reaches 98% of the maximum claim amount.

Yoga - My New Year Resolution - 01/11/11 12:51 AM
One of my resolutions was to get into better shape and work on flexibility and balance so, I chose Yoga. Took my 4th Yoga class tonite at "Just Yoga" in Corona, and it kicked by butt! My legs are trashed. It was most excellent. I brought my son with me cause he wanted to try it. I told him he'd have to pay attention, be calm, quiet and respectful. He was all of those things! One problem, though - we forgot to tell hubby and daughter we were going and I left my cell phone at home. Luckily they didn't panic (1 comments)
Everyone knows the basics by now - “Senior homeowners and home-buyers over the age of 62 may qualify for a government insured reverse mortgage. Call now for our free video.” But what are the nuances and how are they helpful or hurtful? I’d like to point out some of the fine print that you will find in FHA Reverse Mortgage documents, guidelines and other things that might trip someone up. I consider myself very knowledgeable on the product and I won't cover it all here. If you need to know more, dig deeper. There is tons of information out there (3 comments)
