SAN ANTONIO — Southwest Business Corporation recently announced that it has added a Reverse Mortgage Division to its credit union mortgage services menu. SWBC President/CEO Gary Dudley said the company recognized the growing demand for the product and was responding to CU-client inquiries.

Aimed at homeowners who are 62 and older, a reverse mortgage can supplement income for people who have established equity in their homes, even if they don’t own them outright, said Gayle Spillman, head of the division. It allows for income even as the homeowner remains in the house, by either drawing on a line of credit (which can pay interest) or be tied to a 10-year Treasury bill or a fixed rate. “HUD started this program, and it can help people in that age bracket because it is tax exempt. Fannie Mae also has a reverse mortgage product and there are several other proprietary programs as well,” said Spillman. “We use the HUD program and it is a 50% loan to value product.”
