Quotes

Agbamu: Perhaps, it is the too-good-to-be-true nature of the product. Perhaps, we don’t hear the word "reverse,” we just hear the "mortgage" part. The product also attracted some unsavory actors in past who would prey on seniors. Compared to 2001, reverse mortgages have come a long way in popularity, especially through televisions ads with famous actors and politicians."
"It's time to remove the stigma associated with promoting homeownership" Castrol said yesterday at the Bipartisan Policy Center's housing summit in Washington
Competition for these deals is also great,  driven by new government-sponsored enterprises "  (GSEs) programs, Community Reinvestment Act obligations, and ultra-low interest rates."
Smith went on: "If we want to keep homeownership an option for an expanding portion of the population, we should build some additional features into the mortgage product to reduce fragility. At the very least, we should consider the inclusion of product features that allow and even encourage early equity build-up. In that regard, I am pleased to note AEI's Wealth Building Home Loan."
