Senior Housing Wealth Reaches Record $7.23 Trillion

Senior Housing Wealth Reaches Record $7.23 Trillion

NRMLA/RiskSpan Reverse Mortgage Market Index Hits All-Time High of 260.52

PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, April 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Homeowners 62 and older saw their housing wealth grow by 0.5 percent or $39 billion in the fourth quarter to a record $7.23 trillion from Q3 2019, the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association reported today in its quarterly release of the NRMLA/RiskSpan Reverse Mortgage Market Index.

The RMMI rose in Q4 2019 to 260.52, another all-time high since the index was first published in 2000. The increase in senior homeowners' wealth was mainly driven by an estimated 0.6 percent or $55 billion increase in home values, offset by a one percent or $16.6 billion increase of senior-held mortgage debt.

"The responsible use of home equity may be an option to help seniors stay financially secure during the current market disruptions," says NRMLA's President Steve Irwin.

About Reverse Mortgages

Reverse mortgages are available to homeowners age 62 and older with significant home equity. They are a versatile financial tool that seniors can use to borrow against the equity in their home without having to make monthly principal or interest payments as with a traditional "forward" mortgage or a home equity loan. Under a reverse mortgage, funds are advanced to the borrower and interest accrues, but the outstanding balance is not due until the last borrower leaves the home, sells or passes away.

To date, more than 1.12 million households have utilized an FHA-insured reverse mortgage to help meet their financial needs. For more information, please visit www.ReverseMortgage.org
