FREE Reverse Mortgage Pre-Approval

With a Reverse Mortgage you could purchase a home for NO money down! Take the first step here by getting pre-approved quickly and easily!

Available Reverse Mortgage Program

Henry Ford said about the Model T, “You can have any color you want, as long as it’s black!” The equivalent in lending is the representative who works for a single lender. Their limited product selection may be what they have to sell but it may not be the best solution for you.

Operating as both a direct lender and a mortgage broker, C2 Financial Corporation – Shawn Sidhu is approved with every major reverse mortgage lender giving you access to more than fifty different product options. Unlike loan officers who can only offer a single lender option, C2 Reverse Mortgage Professionals will recommend the lender and the products that best suit your highly individual needs.

HECM Options

  • HECM Single Disbursement Payment Option. Historically, HECM borrowers had to take all of the loan proceeds available to them. HUD has created a HECM “mini” option that allows you to take less money at closing. If you are eligible for a $100,000 loan, for example, but don’t want that much money, you can choose a single disbursement equal to 60 percent or less of that sum. Unfortunately, if you wanted more money at a later time, you would not be able to access any additional funds. However, this is a great option for someone who wants to preserve the equity in his home by utilizing a smaller amount of funds.
  • HECM for Purchase. While retirees typically use a HECM to cover living expenses, supplement income, eliminate debts, or pay for healthcare, a growing segment of the senior population is using HECMs to purchase new homes that better suit their needs. The advantage of using a HECM for Purchase is that the new home is purchased outright, using funds from the sale of the old home, which are then combined with the reverse mortgage proceeds. This homebuying process leaves you with no monthly mortgage payments. While study after study reveals that an overwhelming percentage of seniors want to continue living in their current home for as long as possible, for some people that isn’t the best, or safest, option. HECM for Purchase offers a solution for downsizing into a place that’s more easily navigable, possibly more energy efficient, maintenance costs, or which is closer to friends and family.

Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM)

HECM is the commonly used acronym for a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, which is a reverse mortgage insured by and regulated by the Federal Housing Administration, which is part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The maximum amount of loan proceeds you may access during the first 12 months after closing is equal to 60 percent of the full loan amount. For example, if you are eligible for a $100,000 loan, you may only access $60,000. After the initial year has expired, you may use as much or as little of the loan proceeds as you wish. There are exceptions. You can withdraw a bit more if you have an existing mortgage, or other liens on the property, that exceed the 60 percent limit. You must pay off these “mandatory obligations” as the government calls them, before qualifying for the reverse mortgage. You can withdraw enough to pay off these obligations, plus another 10 percent of the maximum allowable amount — in which case that’s an extra $10,000, or 10 percent of $100,000.

FHA collects a Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) at closing based on the amount of funds withdrawn during the initial year. As long as you don’t take more than 60 percent of the available funds in the first year, you will be charged an upfront MIP of 0.50 percent of the appraised value of the home. If, however, you take more than 60 percent, the upfront MIP will be 2.50 percent.

A HECM is not a government loan. It is a loan issued by a private lender that is insured by the FHA. The borrower pays an insurance fee upfront at loan origination, and each year the borrower is charged an annual insurance fee of 1.25% of the outstanding loan balance. Your loan balance thus increases by the amount of this fee. The insurance purchased by this fee protects the borrower (1) if and when the lender is not able to make a payment; and (2) if the value of the home upon selling is not enough to cover the loan balance. In the latter case, the FHA will pay off the remaining balance. Currently, HECMs make up the vast majority of reverse mortgages offered in America. HECMs come with rules and regulations that include a requirement that the borrower receive third-party counseling.

Proprietary Reverse Mortgages

Right now, very few proprietary reverse mortgages exist. However, it’s important to mention them, because market conditions may change in the foreseeable future when property values stabilize.

Proprietary reverse mortgages are non-FHA insured reverse mortgages offered by banks and mortgage companies. They are not subject to all of the same regulations as HECMs. In some states, no counseling is required, although it is always recommended and required by some lenders.

Proprietary reverse mortgages are sometimes called “jumbo” reverse mortgages, because they are taken on higher-valued homes, generally $750,000 or more.

Non Mortgage Products

One new available option is not a mortgage at all but a program that allows homeowners to share some of their future property appreciation through a program that provides cash today. C2 Financial Corporation is approved with the company that offers this option and in certain circumstances, it may be a better choice if you own higher-value homes.

Your C2 Reverse Mortgage professional can explain the program and its benefits to you when reviewing your equity management options.

Shawn and team did an amazing job in making sure that we close our loan in record time! The best part about working with Shawn (for a first time home buyer like me) was that he was always quick to respond to every query we had during the whole process. As a first time buyer, I did not feel any pressure throughout the process, since Shawn took care of the whole thing and made sure that we reach the closing line with ease. I would strongly recommend Shawn for any mortgage loan needs and hope to work with him again during our refinancing.

Shawn and team moved mountains to solution my loan in an extremely short turn-around time. Nothing slipped throughout the entire process and communication was exactly what you hope for instead of biting your nails uncertain what to expect. I didn't have time to hand hold, but also needed quick answer to the questions I did have. Shawn had me covered on all fronts and it was a great crossing the finish line on time. Strongly recommend ! I wish he had a brother that works on cars :-)

We were referred by our realtor to Shawn for the financing of our home purchase. The whole process went very smooth! As stressful as buying a home is, this financing part of the process was easy. The online uploading of docs was straightforward, and we were always kept in the loop about progress and what to expect next. Will definitely keep Shawn and his team in mind for any future needs!

Shawn is great! He helped us get our mortgage in just 28 days! We couldn't have asked for someone better to work with. He is a go-getter and won't stop until he helps you get the best for you. Shawn was available any time we needed to ask a question or when we had any concern. He also offered us a few options to choose from so we had control over our situation from the beginning. I highly recommend you give him a call. Thank you Shawn for all your help. We could definitely not have done it without you.

I am so grateful to have found Shawn/C2 Financial! Words could not describe how blessed I feel to have found him! I was stuck in a financial situation that was tough for me to get out of, and had spoke to my credit union and one other bank, which advised me I had to wait another year before they were able to fund me. I found Shawn on Yelp, and based on his great reviews, I decided to follow through with him/C2 financial. I spoke to him around mid July and was funded by September! When I had been waiting on my Credit Union for 6 months before I decided to move on somewhere else!(Santa Cruz Credit Union if it means anything to anyone) Although he/it seemed to be a company with lots of clientele NEVER once! did I feel I was second to anybody. Even when he was on vacation he responded quickly to my emails when I really wasn't expecting him to. Shawn is truly a perfectionist in his profession, and a Blessing in disguise for me in my life. I will MOST DEFINITELY recommend Shawn/ C2 Financial to anybody and everybody! I could not thank you enough Shawn! I will definitely be doing business with you again in the near future :) Thank you!Sophia.
