### See How Your Home Performs in Different Scenarios

Use the calculator to see how rising home values can offset some (or even all) of the amount of reverse mortgage interest accruing against your home. If your home's value rises enough, it can even offset the original reverse mortgage loan amount (the "principal"). In highly concentrated urban areas, such as those in Ontario and British Columbia, a complete offset of the loan has not been uncommon.
