How to Add $350,000 to Your Clients Retirement with One Simple Strategy!

How do you  to Add $350,000 to Your Clients Retirement?

First, let’s be honest, there are some retirees that $353,000 would not make much of a difference. Today’s post is for those whom it would.

Earlier today I talked with two different financial advisors who had very similar client scenarios:

  • 66 year old couple wants to retire
  • They have around $500,000 in savings
  • They have a home valued at $500,000
  • Their Goal: Enjoy their lifestyle, make sure they don’t run out of money and leave something for their kids if possible.

I was able to share one simple strategy I firmly believe every Financial Advisor and Real Estate Professional must understand:

The HECM for Purchase Program

Here’s how it works:

H4P 500-300-350


Client sells their $500,000 home and moves to a $300,000 home. This is an excellent idea for many reasons.

  • You don’t need that much house anymore
  • You no longer want to do that much yard work
  • You don’t want to worry about deferred maintenance on an older home
  • and much more!

So, they sell that home and instead of paying cash with the proceeds, they used the HECM for purchase program that allows you to finance a portion of the purchase price, reducing what they had have to bring to closing.

Now, because of this one simple strategic move, the client has $353,000 in cash left over after it’s all said and done and no monthly mortgage payments!

Your clients Retirement Savings went from $500,000 to $853,000, and your influence as an advisors is now through the roof!

Reverse Mortgages have changed and Advisors must have current information to give their clients the best shot of a successful retirement.

Make sure you read my earlier post to get up to speed.

“Why Doesn’t Every Realtor in the Country Know About This”
