A reverse mortgage is a mortgage loan that you secure using your residential property, allowing you to access your property's unencumbered value(equity). Reverse mortgages usually don’t require monthly payments and are typically promoted to older residential property owners. Instead of making payments, the cash flow is reversed, and you receive either monthly payments, a lump sum, or a line of credit from the bank.
