Reverse Mortgage Specialist 26 yrs in California and Nevada. HECM for Purchase & Jumbo reverse mortgage expert. Maggie O'Connell Reverse Mortgages can really make a difference in the lives of seniors.
The federally insured home loan helps make lives more comfortable and provide financial security during retirement. The reverse mortgage is a loan against your home. As long as you’re living in the home, you don’t have to worry about making payments back. When you pass away, sell the home, or permanently relocate, the lender will call the reverse mortgage due. At that point in time, it’s up to your heirs to sell the home or refinance the mortgage to pay off the loan balance. A reverse mortgage is a very helpful program for seniors. Over the 20 years they have been in existence, thousands of senior homeowners have been able to stay in their homes and are very happy they took advantage of the program. Do yourself a favor and take your research seriously and learn about the programs available and how they can work for you. Go over the numbers with a trusted family member, friend, or attorney to see if a reverse mortgage can help you.....
Reverse Mortgages are more than a loan, they are financial security and peace of mind. Maggie has been helping people get reverse mortgages since the early 90's with over 100 positive customer reviews. Trust Maggie to give you 100% of her attention to your transaction. HECM Reverse Mortgages... ...unlock equity to use in retirement without requiring any payments to the lender until the last homeowner leaves the home permanently. Like regular mortgages, you hold title to your home and the lender records a lien (deed of trust) as security for the debt. Unlike regular mortgages, you don’t make monthly mortgage payments, instead the interest and mortgage insurance charges are added to the loan balance resulting in rising debt. You receive cash, line of credit or monthly payments. Supplement your income with tax free cash or draw from a line of credit when desired. Pay off existing mortgages and get rid of payments. Or use it to purchase a new home!
Mission: To help seniors take advantage of their homes to provide financial security to live the life they CAN afford.

Reverse mortgage interest rates are at an all time low! Coupled with high home values, borrowers are able to maximize their funds available and minimize interest accrual. If you have a reverse mortgage now, it might be possible to refinance to a lower rate and get more money. If you have a regular mortgage, you might be able to refinance to the HECM reverse mortgage and get rid of mortgage payments forever! Contact me and I'll be happy to evaluate it for you.

I'm very proud of my company, The Federal Savings Bank. Please watch our leader Michael Crossett in an interview about HECM reverse mortgages with Shannon Hicks
hecmworld.com We had a chance to catch up with Mike as he discusses partnering with banks, marketing, and building a successful HECM business.
Great turnout at Retired Living Truth Series on ‘Paying for Retirement’ A lot of interest in reverse mortgages. It’s clear people want to remain in their homes as long as possible.
Ask me about the next series!
This is a picture of me in high school. I grew up in the small town of Live Oak in the Northern Sacramento Valley of California. I was friends with everyone in my small high school and like most of the kids, worked in the fields to earn our own spending money. The “Live Oak values” have lasted throughout my life which includes working hard, being honest and caring about others. I think these values are the foundation of my successful reverse mortgage career.
I provide peace of mind! This statement I think sums up what I do for you. Not only in the program that I promote but in the service I provide. Let me elaborate. The program, reverse mortgages, gives you peace of mind because it may eliminate mortgage payments and provide extra cash or line of credit to take care of your financial needs in the future. To give you that added security you need in this world or ‘what if’s’. What if I need home repairs. What if I become ill and have medical bills. What if inflation hits my pocketbook hard. What if I want to go on a vacation and enjoy life more!
And I provide peace of mind in knowing that in the loan process, I’ll be there for you. This isn’t an assembly line operation where the sales person catches you on their hook and passes you down the line to people you don’t know and who don’t know you. I call my business a “Reverse Mortgage Boutique”. I’m your gal! You will have the peace of mind knowing I’ll be there for you from start to finish and with my 25 years of experience in the reverse mortgage profession, you’ll receive not only expert knowledge but compassionate assistance. I’ll learn and understand the way you operate, the way your mind works and cater to your specific needs. I’ll be your point of contact and take responsibility through the entire process from our initial conversation and education to final closing documents and be the person you call in years to come when a question comes up.
Additional peace of mind comes with the package as my company, The Federal Savings Bank is a nationally chartered, FDIC bank. We are closely regulated by the OCC and diligently follow strict privacy guidelines. Working with us, you will be assured your sensitive financial documents will be secure and safe.
Many of my clients shop around and get quotes from the big reverse mortgage ‘mills’ to try to get the best rates and lowest costs. They are often surprised to find out they can also get the best service and “Peace of Mind” on all counts when they call Maggie O’Connell’s “Reverse Mortgage Boutique”.

Make this Fourth of July memorable by counting your blessings and truly appreciating your freedom.
One of the biggest misconceptions about Reverse Mortgages is that the bank owns your home or takes your home when you die. FALSE! It is simply a mortgage with the monthly payment deferred. You always retain title and when you move, sell or pass away, the loan balance is due. The home is sold or mortgage paid off and you or your heirs retain the equity.

forbes.com Home equity is crucial for retirees in America, but misconceptions about reverse mortgages are widespread. Not only do consumers struggle with reverse mortgages, but so does the media as illustrated by a recent New York Times article that reinforced a common reverse mortgage misconception.
"For instance, a “well funded” borrower may have planned well for retirement, but could use a reverse mortgage to buy a new home — either larger or smaller than the current property — or remodel his or her existing home to age in place safely and comfortably. On the other end of the spectrum, an “underfunded” retiree could take out a HECM and pay down high-cost debt, cover the cost of necessary medications, or even just keep the heat on in the winter."

[03/03/17] A homeowner I've been staying in touch with contacted me and said she is getting close to pulling the trigger and getting a reverse mortgage. She asked if she waited 2 years, how much more money would she receive. So I ran the numbers. Her home value is $255,000 and she is 68 years old, her principal limit (PL) is $143,300. At age 70 that amount would be $146,888. But that is only if interest rates remain the same. If she waits until age 70 and the rate increases by only 1/2 percentage point, the PL is reduced to $130,815. If the rate increases by 1 point, the PL is $115,000. The lesson learned here, is, yes, older people get more money, but waiting could backfire if there are interest rate increases!
