Lie in the dot com's senior care lie about. Dot com click on the podcast have been that's where you'll find all of the previously aired episodes. Our rights without any further delay. Like to introduce you to mr. Josh buff and he's with community First National Bank he's a reverse mortgage specialist. Josh walk and senior care life thanks for having Steve could be here all right all right is great to have you here. It and I'm a huge huge thing and a reverse mortgages. And and I think while I know there's a lot of misunderstanding on the marketplace so I'm really. I am so happy that you're here to set the record straight we are all about education and information. I hear on the program so tell us as a reverse mortgage specialists are with community first national make policy at what he is so we'll just start off with one of one what is a reverse mortgage. Over smaller for. Mortgage Steve is slang term. And it was given to the loan and by industry people because it was easy way to describe. What was going on. You're a lame okay so as not really a reverse mortgage that's just kind of a yacht. Just to just kind of I like you said just kind of a slang term that was. Thrown out there correct I was actually called home equity conversion mortgage okay. And it was put into effect during the Reagan administration okay it was really. There to help people that were returning that we're World War II veterans that may have been struggling trying to finance retirement okay. Common that was kind of just it was just kind of there to help them. But as the blown has evolved and changed. It's really become more financial tool. So it's not just a loan of last resort like many people think that some of misconceptions that are out there but it actually can be something that may. Be allowed you to dollar cost average your curtain investments return. Okay all right. You know at home equity conversion mortgage to me that really says what it is an absolutely says exit so he is so home equity conversion mortgage your converting your home equity into a mortgage in CN ISE download all kinds of such as I was so it was a reverse mortgage but that's interesting so so that term was dismayed to pay as a kind of a basic. And another this is a term to describe and understand yeah yeah so I've met home equity conversion mortgage okay and so let's let's tackle. Some of these misconceptions about the about the reverse mortgage. Well it. Some of the misconceptions are that all the things gonna take your home. Well that there have been foreclosures in the reverse world yeah but they are brought on by people not paying taxes. Defaulting on interest pain so any mortgage can be foreclosed upon. Correct including eight reverse mortgage or a standard mortgage or any mortgage if you don't pay your taxes. Or year you don't pay your your your mortgage payment sit on a traditional mortgage is set Iraq. Indy mortgage can be for cook foreclosed upon so it's not a reverse mortgage issue it's just someone not taking care distance. Correctly you know army and if you own your own free and clear you don't pay your taxes eventually that. The county will sell your home up. For so yeah you can lose your home for not paying taxes regardless of what leaner and knowing you have on property and that's where the majority of foreclosures have come from. You know so obviously you know of the media gets a hold of it or something like that didn't know it's this poor old lady lost your home. But it was due to be non tax and and I'm dating mitigate against that in recent changes to the product. Now they do what's called a life expectancy set aside so they think there's. There's danger of somebody not be able to pay. For their taxes and insurance they'll put what's called a life expectancy set aside release. Take on the alone and that's basically hoped setting aside some of the equity in the property. For the life expectancy of the borrower to pay taxes an inch. C and I love that extra layer of protection. And frankly for both parties for the lender and for the homeowner. And so the lease on life expectancy set aside just to protect just in case there's. But there may be a chance of you know not paying your taxes keeping your shorts up at Sutter. Yeah and that's all part of the financial assessment OK and with financial assessment does it basically assesses the borrower's ability to pay. And the willingness to pay pink so if there's some credit issues or some you know the you know. Opera things that it may have not been paid in the past as far as taxes and insurance mountain home ownership. Then that's when the leases and implement. OK so if you're right if you're not scoring quite as high as someone else maybe just build in this little this little pad if you will. Two to take care of any any chance of that well that makes them makes sense to make sense so the incomes not okay. So how does the written this reverse mortgage at in a case so I may I may have to change my might turn out. Terminology to home equity conversion mortgage. Signed into into. Into law by under president Reagan's. Term to help. World War II the greatest generation try to keep up on some of their. There there income shortfalls in and and frankly for the purpose of this program to keep you independently remain independent in your own home. Well this product has become more mainstream. Here recently and it's primarily driven by the baby boomers was about 121000. People turned 62 every day. In the country. And you know a lot of them are either completely prepared for retirement would like to enhance their current retirement plans. With utilizing. The asset that is currently a hard assets in the form of home Lou you know traditionally you have to sell that home. Or take out home equity line of credit which would cause another payment yeah access to adequate. The with a reverse mortgage you're able to access it and do what you want with that equity in not creating new payments now you have the options. That's the beauty about this loan is you have many options you can decide to pay the interest only on that. And there could be no tax benefit you need to check with your accountant on that chart but you can also make it like a traditional mortgage you could pay. Interest and some principal pay down the way to does not pay at all kite or you can do it intermittently. The choices are yours are so this sounds like there. Is this a lot more flexible than maybe used to be when reverse mortgages first came out. It's always and always been there it's always dubbed the option to pay has always been OK okay but but the thing about it is isn't most people feel like. You know they don't have any options right then and you know that need to have that explained to him because. It can be a brilliant financial tool because if you decide that this is your final home. You may never realize it investment aspect. And the only way you're gonna actually see some of the investment front that you made into the home by accessing at. OK so and so the here's here's the bottom line in like I always go back to this and maybe. Maybe this it seems seems elementary by ARP did a huge huge study and they asked a lot of people. You know we. Really do you wanna stay home or do you wanna move to senior care community nine out of ten people say you know I'm staying home while staying home. If you're if you're getting older and you may need some help around the house maybe needs a special equipment some home field modifications to agent place. That costs money and what if you don't have a lot of disposable. And cash and available to it to work to pick up some of those costs you can use a reverse mortgage as a financial tool again to help you remain independent at home. Correct. You know. You know it is a fabulous tool of what but the problem is is. Many people don't understand it and and you know what I pride myself on and all the people I work with is we believe education is for so. You know fewer reach out to us and we were to talk to you you'd. You publish spend at least half an hour 45 minutes. With me making sure that your completely educational product before we went in any further. It's it's important to know what all your options are in everybody's situation is completely different. And what what works where one person may not work for the other. But the product is so diverse and there are so many ways in which you can utilize it it usually has a fit for almost 80%. Of people that I talked. Okay so to reach out to Josh bustle with community first. National bank let me give you his personal number. And Josh answers this phoned I mean all the time.

Stories so to share with us over the next several months on how he has been able to help individuals remain independent. In their own home so have a whole lot more from Josh in the coming months. All right tendon in the short time that we have left. I just want it and I won't answer the most commonly asked question that I've been asked over the last fifteen plus years. Operating my firm's senior care consultant Steve. When should we move when should we think about moving from home to a senior care community. And I'll tell you why that is a very difficult question and sometimes it's pretty obvious. More often than not it is not so obvious. Let me say this I've had this conversation with lots and lots of families and individuals and clients here lately. See we're thinking about moving you know maybe this summer maybe this fall. Is it too early to start looking with with your firm's senior care consulting. Helping helping us through that search and selection process she recall you this summer or should we do it now or should we wait till the fall. What when should you do that in my pack. My message loudly and clearly do not waits the best places. Have waiting lists and sometimes he's waiting list can be three to six months sometimes they can be it can be a twelve month plus waiting list. So right now is the time to call senior care consulting. And and and I'll help you through this search and selection process she'd be your name. On the waiting list and up and rest assured that that you know you are going to have the place. Are available you can have your apartment or your room available to you. When you really want to move later this fall or even in the winner even in the summer now is the time to do that give me a call at 913. 9452800. 9139452800. And so I'm just going to do a quick review of win you should consider. Moving from your home to a senior care communities so. Let's say that is just not going to work at home any longer than you do need to move. I think the following things should trigger that conversation number one win that it's no longer safe to live at home it can be and a safety issue. Falling victim to financial abuse that's a safety concern. Leaving the stove top earners on that's a really really common one I hear that all the time but also that's an easy one to six or resolve you can turn gas off to the stove. Unplug the stove it's if it's electric or flips a breaker. But the bottom line is that's a major major safety. The issue deal potentially at some point. Another safety concern again this is very very common seems to be happening more and more. But someone with alzheimer's or dementia cognitive impairment. Wondering away from their home and they cannot find their way back home they may also drive. Away from their home in their vehicle not able to find their way back home and now we have a silver alerts. So this seems like you know we used to hear about a silver alert you know once in awhile. Now I'm hearing about silver alert you know maybe once a week or more. It depending on on the week so it's a major major safety issue wandering away. And not being able to find your way back home or you may drive the way. Not able to find your way back home one that's not as readily apparent but it's a major safety issue not taking your medications properly. Maybe you're not taken them on time maybe your skipping a dose for skipping a day may be your mistakenly your inadvertently. Taking DO two doses in in one sitting. Taking your medications properly it's a major. If it's a big big huge deal it's a major safety concern if you're not taking medications. Properly can also just have injuries at home frequent false frequent hospitalizations. So number one. Issue. I should trigger the conversation. Considering moving from her home to senior care community. When it is no longer safe to live at home number two in this is a very close close number two when their caregivers health begins to decline. We're talking beg your mental health emotional health. Spiritual health and of course your physical health stress is a very powerful force and I can't tell you how many times. I've seen the caregiver pass away. Due to the high stress and that and just. That bit into the caregivers put it all themselves second they always put themselves last they love this person so much. They're just laid it all out therefore are on the line. And it's to their detriment many many times so when their caregivers health begins to decline now you have two people declining. He just can't have that very long that should trigger the conversation. But considering moving from your home to senior care community. At number three just when the cost of of remaining independent home becomes too expensive or maybe you're you're just you're you're out of assets. So you views a reverse mortgage you give you've used your assets you've brought in home care you've remodeled your home. You've done all the things. It and and it's just to cost prohibitive that -- point may be financially driven decision in the last but not least.
