What Happens to Home Equity with a Reverse Mortgage?

Being able to access cash without having to sell your home or make repayments can be life changing for many retirees. If you’re considering a reverse mortgage, though, it is important to understand how interest is charged on the loan and how it will impact your home equity over time.
