### Some Notes About the Calculator

Before going through with using our calculator, the following are just some notes about the reverse mortgage calculator and what it entails

• Estimated Funds Available calculates how much you are eligible to receive, before fees, based on your home’s value, your age, and HUD’s principal limit factor.
• Based on where interest rates are right now, you will likely receive the most accurate estimate by choosing “Under 5.000%”.
• Most of the fields are self-explanatory (for spouse’s age, you should input the age of the youngest owner of your home)
• Since most homeowners do not know the exact value of their homes, we’ve broken the home value option into \$25,000 units
• For interest rates below 5%, there are no differences in borrowing power. In other words, you are eligible to receive the same amount of money whether your rate is say 3.75% or 4.5%. So we’ve set the lower bound on rate to “Under 5.000%”.

We want you to be as informed as possible so you can receive the closest estimation in the amount of money you could be eligible for; the future will always be uncertain, but with the reverse mortgage calculator, it helps you take some of that uncertainty out of the future and allows for a brighter and better financial outlook on your future.
