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.

"My wife and I started working full-time at a very young age. We bought our first home together when we were both just 24. I still remember the day we picked it out – it was perfect! After we had our third child, we knew we would always be working to stay on top of our mortgage payments. That meant we would have a tough time travelling, something we’d always dreamed of doing together. Since retiring, we have had the freedom to travel to three continents. Thanks to our reverse mortgage, we’re retiring exactly how we wanted." - Greg A
