Age differences causing concern
Brookville, PA | December 23, 2014
My husband is 64 and I am 61, in order to get a reverse mortgage my name must be taken off the deed--this scares me. The forms we signed seemed to have conflicting information about what happens to me if my husband dies. Can I ever be put back on the deed? Do I have to pay the loan on his passing? What are the facts and the options?
The entire process was very positive
East Wenatchee, WA | July 16, 2014
Before my husband died, he knew that I would retire one day and he asked me to look into a Reverse Mortgage when I was ready to retire. After he died, I continued to work, but in the meantime my younger sister (who is also a widow) moved in with me. Then my mom, also a widower lost her significant other and I moved her in as well. With the reverse mortgage, I was able to pay my loan off, pay off my taxes, my mom's property taxes and have been able to raise my credit rating to a much more acceptable number.
Is anyone there?
Bangor, CA | May 21, 2013
I have called 4 times only to be transferred to someone named Edward who is never in the office. He does not return the calls. Today I called again. Again he was out of the office and I asked to be transferred to his supervisor. Who was also out of the office.Is anyone ever there? Edward Aziz where are you?

I am so tired of Fred Thompson"s TV ads every hour or two that I would not touch your company with a 10 foot pole. Count me out! RDP
Cornville, AZ | January 20, 2012
I recently helped my grandparents through the reverse mortgage process. We used AAG and were very satisfied with the company.My grandparents had complications with their title, however they still received their funds within 40 days of starting the process.I helped my grandparents by researching reverse mortgages and learned a lot--the borrower has responsibilities too-My gparents had to complete HECM counseling prior to going forward (govt requirement). Perhaps there were complications AAG couldn't control
It's great to be free of our home mortgage
T/o West Orange, NJ | January 09, 2012
My husband and I were watching TV and the ad for AAG came on, so we decided to call. After we watched the CD we talked about the possibility that a reverse mortgage could end our financial problems and decided to call AAG. Frank, our rep, helped us through every step, answered all our questions and returned our call promptly. At the end, AAG helped us to be relieved of our mortgage payments. Companies like AAG are hard to come by and it's great to be free of our home mortgage.

Joann, money offered to a borrower is a formula set forth by the government based on age and home value - closing costs are the costs (origination fee, UFMIP, and third party fees) - the company can cut origination and cover other fees if they choose to - so how does spending millions in advertising make them offer less money? All that means is that AAG makes less money per closed loan b/c of their marketing costs - but the borrower gets the same with AAG or whomever they choose.
Star Valley, AZ | February 05, 2013
AAG spends millions every day on TV ads - 3-4 times an hour - on every TV station. Plus what do they pay Fred Thompson - possibly millions also? This amounts to millions of dollars that could have increased YOUR money received from dealing with this organization. What a scam!
AAG was painless
Albuquerque, NM | December 01, 2011
Speaking from personal experience, it was a difficult decision. I think most of us are raised thinking we need to work for a long time and pay off your mortgage. I guess the word "mortgage" carries a negative stigma and scares people At any rate, AAG was extremely helpful in explaining everything in a clear and simple manner. They eased all my concerns that I had in making this happen. They didn't try to sell me something; rather they helped me sell it to myself that was what was important.
Helpful and knowledgeable staff
Atwater, CA | September 02, 2011
My son suggested this service to my wife and I and it was a great decision. American Advisors Group kept all of their commitments and their customer service was excellent. They answered all of my questions thoroughly and explained the entire process to me clearly. They made sure I understood everything that was going to happen. I would be happy to recommend them to my friends.
AAG Reverse Mortgage(s) are VERY expensive
Chicago, IL | August 20, 2011
HOLY COW are the fees high for a reverse mortgage from AAG. The so called American Advisors basically advise you to take a very expensive loan from them, especially if your house is only worth less than $150k like ours. I wish I could get a better and lower rate loan from a bank, but AAG is the best deal I have, unfortunately.
Dallas, GA | July 26, 2013
Fees are set by the government.
Thank You AAG
Ontario, CA | May 25, 2011
I got a reverse mortgage with AAG in 2010. The service was excellent. I couldn't ask for any better service from anyone. I could reach Michelle anytime I needed. I was amazed at how smoothly everything ran. I never dreamed that this would go through as quickly as it did, and with as much ease as it did. After getting this reverse mortgage, I'm so relieved, and excited for the future.

A reverse mortgage is very different from a regular mortgage. You won't have any monthly mortgage payments to make and you won't have to pay off the loan as long as one of you need reside in the home (as your principal residence), you continue to maintain the property, and you stay current on your property taxes.
You can take a reverse mortgage as a monthly draw to help you maintain your lifestyle and stay at home. I recommend that you check out Bills.com articles including our reverse mortgage counseling checklist and our articles about HECM loans.
Benton, KY | November 13, 2013
My wife and I are considering a reverse mortgage as the answer to our retirement needs. I am 65 and my wife is 63. I have worked all my life but I don't have any retirement except for a small monthly social security check. We own our home out right. We are scared about this. Right now we don't have a mortgage on our house and the word mortgage scares us. But we so desperately need an answer. Can anyone help put our fears to rest!
Macon, GA | March 13, 2012
Carolyn, I think I know the problem. You admitted that you "moved" or "left" your "home-state" to reside in a home in CO to qualify. You have to live in a home 6 months out of the year to qualify as a primary residence. Even the IRS has that rule. Sounds like you are actually "living" somewhere else but you want the program to bend the rules so you can qualify.
Satsuma, FL | February 02, 2012
I had a similar experience with M&T Bank in upstate NY. After 2-1/2 months they denied the loan under similar circumstances. I wondered if there was a way to complain or appeal To HUD, since they oversee the program. After a while, I contacted my local congressman, thinking to have them contact HUD. The last I heard they contacted the "Governmental Affairs" office of M&T and they agreed to review the file. This was in the last few weeks, so I can't tell you "the rest of the story" yet. The moral is: Since reverse mortgages come under the Federal HUD program, it is something members of congress can legitimately question. I have found my MC's office eager to assist in any way possible. A very sharp young lady on his staff is handling my case.
Colleyville, TX | June 12, 2011
I am not having a pleasant experience with AGG at all. I have left family and friends from my home state to reside in my home in CO to qualify for this RM. I have followed every rule I was given, but the rules seem to continue to change. i was even told that my home dies not look lived in because it was too clean and the towels are too neatly folded. That is the honest truth!!! I am still gathering more infor for them and will continue but I need to know if there is anyone who can help me in this process. If the rukes are going to continue to change I need to be told so that I can elsewher, even though now I am months into this. I am desperate for someone's help. This is all advertised as way too easy and some not seeming accurate at all. thank you, Carolyn Meier
Wonderful company at American Advisors
Kennesaw, GA | May 25, 2011
I have no hesitation in recommending American Advisors Group to anyone considering a reverse mortgage. You will get honest and competent answers to any questions you may have, along with superior service and support throughout, which is hard to believe in a transaction involving FHA and HUD. The work done by these people has enabled me to fully retire at the end of this year, for which I expect to be always grateful.
The grandmother of a good friend
Plainfield, IL | February 08, 2011
I would use this company over Binder & Binder any day of the week!! This company got my friend's grandma her money in a short while and she now is debt free and taking vacations 2-3x each year. She received her money in late 2009 and is living great at age 67.
Satsuma, FL | February 02, 2012
What does Binder & Binder have to do with it? Aren't B&B attorneys? I don't think they give reverse mortgages?
