What is a reverse mortgage?
A reverse mortgage is a truly incredible loan that gives homeowners the power to tap into the equity they have built up in their property. It is available to anyone 62 years of age and gives them the ability to upgrade their lifestyle without having to sell their home.
Homeowners can draw down funds in various ways including a line of credit which is always handy, and all without having to sell up and downsize.
The real beauty of a reverse mortgage loan is that provided the terms of the loan are met, it does not require repayment of the loan until either the homeowner sells the residence or the last surviving borrower passes away. It is one of the shrewdest ways you can give your standard of living a significant boost and put your financial worries to bed.

About Fort Myers, Florida
The city was named in 1850 after what was one of the finest and largest forts of the Seminole Wars, in honour of Colonel Abraham Myers who served in the U.S. Army.
It was the site of the Battle of Fort Myers during the final months of the American Civil War in 1865 in what became known as its “southernmost land battle”.
In 1885, there were 349 residents living in Fort Myers when the town was officially founded. But the rich and famous were soon attracted to the area – like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone. They became known as the “Millionaire’s Club” and they are remembered today in statues at Fort Myers’ Centennial Park.
A real estate boom saw people rush to the region in the 1930s and it is now home to around 90,000 people.
No city in Florida sees more days of sun than Fort Myers. Its beaches also boast more shell varieties than anywhere else in America.
