I just got off the phone with a representative named Maurice from AAG and the conversation was very frustrating and a bit volatile. All I wanted to begin with from Maurice was to get some basic, upfront, transparent information about a Reverse Mortgage Program that I was hearing so much about. All he would tell me is that this is a "wonderful" program for adults over 62. He sang the glories of not having to pay back this loan for the rest of my life etc. etc. However my concern was how does this really work. . . somebody had to be making money on this program.

Paying off a Reverse Mortgage Early -

By Steven Roberts Updated on 3/25/2015 If you want to pay off your reverse mortgage but do not have access to the needed funds, the only real option is to sell your home and then pay the lender using the funds from the sale. If you do decide to pay off the reverse mortgage in advance, check to see if there are any pre-payment penalties involved. The reverse mortgage will come due in the event of your death. In order to keep the home on which the reverse mortgage is taken, your heirs will need to pay off the due amount. They may choose to sell the home, or the lender may sell in order to settle the loan.

I am a huge Tom Selleck fan. I love everything this guy is in. From his early start on my all time favorite show, The Rockford Files, to Magnum P. I. , Jesse Stone, Three Men And A Baby, Blue Bloods; I love them all. It also makes me that much fonder to know that he is a one of the very few conservatives in the entertainment world.   Tom Selleck is not someone, however, that I expected to see in a commercial promoting reverse mortgages for AAG. Reverse mortgage pitchmen are usually actors that are in the twilight of their careers. Tom Selleck is a bonafide present day superstar, and according to some reports is the highest paid actor in the world.
