In the third part of the case-study series focusing on home equity as an effective strategy in comprehensive financial planning, we will use real-life scenarios to examine how a reverse mortgage can be used to purchase the right home for aging in place with no required monthly principal or interest payments while preserving invested assets at the same time. Participants will learn how to integrate the reverse mortgage program as a pro-active planning tool, develop strategies for turning dormant equity into opportunity, and effectively communicate to clients “why and how” this tool provides unique planning solutions that can safeguard any later-life funding strategy.
- Outline opportunities to enhance a later-life asset and income distribution plan
- Discuss broad-based knowledge of the reverse mortgage product
- Identify risks in clients' financial plans that could be mitigated by including home equity into the planning process
