• About

Reverse Mortgage Analyst was founded to help consumers to understand one of the more complicated tools available to them as they think about retirement. In addition to providing information, we have taken the time to review the major providers so that consumers who are thinking about a reverse mortgage can come to a single place to start their search. 

We hold ourselves to a high standard: This is the same information that we have given to family members and these are the reverse mortgage providers that we would choose for ourselves.

Who are we?

We’re founded by a team of financial services veterans with 40+ combined years of helping consumers reach better outcomes.  We’re math majors, econ majors and have optimized wealth management experiences, lending experiences and even mining ones!  We have seen first-hand the transformative power of financial freedom that can come when individuals don't have to worry about how to make it to next week. We built Reverse Mortgage Analyst to provide additional information about one tool that could help more people realize that experience.

At Reverse Mortgage Analyst, our goal is to provide you with some information about reverse mortgages and then point you in the direction of the major providers in the market. We want you to understand the basics of the product, and then have a convenient place with all of the contact details to allow you to find the best provider. We really can't stress it enough - make sure that you contact multiple providers to make sure that you are getting the best possible reverse mortgage. They each have strengths and weaknesses, so taking the time now to understand their differences will pay dividends in the long run.

We hold ourselves to a high standard: This is the same information that we have given to family members and these are the reverse mortgage providers that we would choose for ourselves.

How we get paid

Reverse Mortgage Analyst gets paid by reverse mortgage providers.  We understand that you may worry that creates a bias for us to recommend the provider who pays us the most.  All we can say is that the most important things to the health of this site are its reputation and its relationship with you. We know that reverse mortgages are not right for everyone, and we want to make sure that you are equipped with the knowledge to make that determination yourself. Once you understand the product - and you think that you want one - we recommend that you contact a bunch of providers so you can see for yourself which provider is right for you. We feel that this approach - providing a solid base of knowledge and then encouraging rigorous comparison shopping - is the best mix of keeping the lights on for us and giving you a great experience.
