A reverse mortgage is an absolute game changer for retirees and one of the most powerful and ingenious loans ever devised. Quite simply, this loan allows retirees to have their cake and eat it too, by unlocking the value of their property. Applicants have to be at least 62 years of age, to be able to access the value of their home, without the need to move. Homeowners can draw down funds in several different ways; including a popular line of credit, all without the stress and inconvenience of having to sell their home.

The strength of this incredible product is that as long as the terms of the loan are met, there is no need to repay it until either the homeowner sells the residence or the last surviving borrower passes away.

It allows retirees to enjoy a superior standard of living to what they otherwise may have had to settle for.

Housing prices are booming all over the land, and Des Moines is yet another example, with properties rising more than 14 percent in the last 12 months to an average of $176,450. (

There are already 431 people in the Des Moines area with a reverse mortgage; 23 of them have utilized the power of this outstanding loan in the last 12 months alone.

About Des Moines, Iowa 

There is evidence of human occupation at the site of modern day Des Moines some 7000 years ago. Excavations for a wastewater treatment plant uncovered more than 6000 artifacts as part of what is now known as the “Palace Site” in 2010. Originally Fort Raccoon and then Fort Des Moines upon its inauguration in 1851, the city’s name was shortened in 1857. It is named after the river it is situated on and literally translates from French to mean “River of the Monks”. The completion of a railroad link in 1866 put Des Moines squarely on the map. Today, it stands as one of the major centers of the US insurance industry with a large financial services and publishing business base. In recent years, Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard and Facebook have all moved into the area. The Capitol Building, also known as the Iowa Statehouse, houses around 100 ounces of gold. It draws thousands of visitors every year along with the Blank Park Zoo and the fascinating Pappajohn Sculpture Park.
