Is a reverse mortgage the way to finance a project to make your home more age-friendly? As a homeowner age 55+, you may be considering a HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage), aka a “reverse mortgage.” You’ve seen the ads with famous people promoting them, but you may have also heard horror stories. As more people retire, HECMs are expected to become more popular. But, is it right for you? WHEN: Wednesday, November 15 2017, 5:00 – 6:00 PM WHERE: Lesley University Hall, 1815 Massachusetts Avenue, Room 4-040, Cambridge http://agassiz.org/2017/11/reverse-mortgage-fact-fiction-v2/
