Simple: all reverse mortgages area a scam.

DDaniel Cohen, Nov, 2019

Your advice isn't simple. It is simplistic. All it takes is one satisfied reverse mortgage holder to prove you wroong. I view reverse mortgages as a niche product; they are not right for each person who could qualify for one. However, it is easy to come up with reasonable scenarios for a person who would benefit from a reverse mortgage.

I looked into a reverse mortgage from One Reverse and decided the front end loading of fees and charges was a bit excessive for the little bit of cash I would get at closing.I told the Mortgage Banker I was no longer interested, but he continued to hound me with calls and voicemails for a week till I threatened to report him to the BBB and Attorney General.

I see those One Reverse Mortgage tv ads all over the place. Are they the best reverse mortgage companies or are there better ones? Jack
