We provide outstanding services to our clients, which really sets up apart from the competition.
We are a direct lender and that structure allows us access to an array of options; this provides for better control of the total process and allows us to better guide you along the way.
One of the most important aspects of being a Mortgage Loan Originator is to fully understand each client’s unique situation. Indeed, sometimes the reverse mortgage may not be the best solution for a client. If this is the case, we aim to direct our client to other resources that may be better suited to them and their unique circumstance.
We do the “heavy lifting”. We work closely with our clients to make sure that the process is done correctly and as seamlessly as possible. In this area there is nothing like the experience and level of service that our team brings!

The Steps to Obtain a Reverse Mortgage
Reverse Mortgages have helped thousands of seniors remain in their homes and create a more solid financial foundation. At APRMG we make it as easy as possible for you to obtain a Reverse Mortgage that is right for you. We are here for you every step of the way, helping you understand and customize a loan that meets your unique situation. We know this type of decision can at times be daunting; we encourage you to seek advice and counsel of those you trust the most, whether it be family, an attorney, a financial planner, a tax specialist or other trusted professional. The following steps are here to help guide you and give you an idea of what to expect throughout the process of obtaining a reverse mortgage.
Step 1: Education and Research
Contact us for detailed information about the Reverse Mortgage programs at 888-473-8684. We can create a comparison of available Reverse Mortgage programs that best fit your specific situation. Within this consultation we will help you to evaluate each option available.
We recommend you consult other organizations for information such as: The National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association (NRMLA) which is the “national voice and conscience of the reverse mortgage industry.” You can find them at http://www.reversemortgage.org.
Another great industry resource is the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) found at http://www.hud.gov.
Step 2: Counseling
Once you have completed your research and have determined that a Reverse Mortgage is right for you, you must attend Reverse Mortgage Counseling. Counseling is mandatory; however we look at it as an educational checkpoint to confirm your research. There is a cost associated with this mandatory service that averages $125 per session. Pending on available State and Federal funding, this cost may be waived by the counseling organization. Sessions generally range between 1-2 hours and are often done over the phone but you have the right to receive face-to-face counseling if desired.
Step 3: Application
Upon completion of Reverse Mortgage counseling it is time to schedule an appointment with one of our knowledgeable Reverse Mortgage Specialists who will guide you through the paperwork package. The application can be done in person with a Reverse Mortgage Specialist or via mail.
Step 4: Appraisal and Escrow
Once we have received your signed and dated counseling certificate and have completed the application process, we will coordinate for an appraiser to go out to your home. The appraiser will follow a process to determine the value of your home. At this time we also open escrow to order a title report and ensure that there are no Federal or State tax liens on the property. It usually takes 1-2 weeks to receive a completed appraisal and title report.
Step 5: Underwriting
Once we have received all of the preliminary reports, inspection reports, and reviewed the loan package for completeness and compliance, we submit the loan for review and approval from the underwriter (the person who approves the loan). The underwriter then goes into a review process and may request further documentation.
Step 6: Closing
When your loan receives a final approval we will set up a signing appointment at the Title Company or a Mobile Notary who will go to a location convenient to you. Signing the final loan documents takes about an hour. Once the documents are fully executed they will be returned to APRMG for funding.
Step 7: Disbursement
By law, refinance loans have a three-day right of rescission to cancel the loan. After the three-day “waiting” period, funds are disbursed and recorded with your County. Purchase loans are typically recorded and funded within two business days.
