SaddleBrooke Stroke/Neuro Support Group – January 2015

Reverse Mortgages: A Senior Business Matter

Stephen Wolf, speaking on Reverse Mortgages in Today’s Market, will be the featured speaker Saturday, January 31 at 10:00 a.m. in the handicap accessible Coyote Room of the HOA 1 Clubhouse. Sponsored by the SaddleBrooke Stroke/Neuro Support Group, the talk is free to all. If you have ever entertained the thought of generating better cash flow while staying in your own home, you will want to hear this presentation. It is definitely worth considering the perks of a reverse mortgage in great detail.

Wolf is licensed nationally and by the state of Arizona as an approved provider of the “new and improved” Federal Housing Administration reverse mortgage product which is called an HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage). He has been originating home loans for more than 40 years in Arizona and is an approved direct endorsement underwriter for the FHA as well as being an approved underwriter for the Veterans’ Administration.
