What is a reverse mortgage?

reverse mortgage is one of the most ingenious loans on the market. That’s because it allows homeowners the opportunity to free up the equity they have built in their property.

If you are at least 62 years of age, you can apply for this life-changing product which lets homeowners trade out “careful” for “comfort”. All while remaining in their treasured home!

Homeowners can draw down funds in a variety of different ways; including a line of credit which is great for financial flexibility, saving them the trauma of having to sell up and downscale.

The real power of a reverse mortgage loan is that provided the terms of the loan are met, it does not require repayment of the loan until either the homeowner sells the residence or the last surviving borrower passes away. It is one of the most astute ways you can give your standard of living a massive boost and leave your financial worries behind.

About Staten Island, New York

Staten Island was named after the Staten-Generaal (States General) of the Dutch Republic. English and Welsh farmers moved to the island in 1664, following the acquisition of New Netherland, the first Dutch colony in North America, by Great Britain.

The borough itself was originally known as the Borough of Richmond until it became the Borough of Staten Island in 1975.

With a population of just 500,000 people, Staten Island has sometimes been called the “forgotten borough." Curiously, despite being culturally linked to and part of New York, the island itself is geologically part of New Jersey.

The borough includes a number of smaller and uninhabited islands; including The Isle of Meadows, Prall’s Island, Shooters Island, Swinburne Island and Hoffman Island.

The Staten Island Ferry connects the island to Manhattan and provides idyllic views of the famous Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and lower Manhattan.
