Reverse Mortgages

What is a reverse mortgage?

A reverse mortgage allows you to borrow money using the equity in your home as security. The loan may be taken as a lump sum, an income stream, a line of credit or a combination of these options. Interest is charged like any other loan, but you usually don't need to make repayments while you live in your home. The loan must be repaid in full if you sell your home or die or, in most cases, if you move into aged care. Typically, you are charged a higher interest rate on a reverse mortgage than for a standard home loan.

"I would like to thank Tassie Home Loans, in particular Jason Smyth for the excellent service during the purchase of our new home and the follow up calls to ensure we were completely satisfied with the package we received. Jason was able to negotiate with the Big 4 to provide us with rates that the Big 4 were not offering when applying to them directly. Well done Jason and Tassie Home Loans for extending real customer service that all others don’t. You have my recommendation!!!! If you want to save $$$$$ talk to Tassie Home Loans!"
