Are you a senior citizen in need of extra money for remodeling your home, buying a new car, or even purchasing additional real estate? After all it is a buyer’s market and there are some fabulous buys available. If so, a Reverse Mortgage may be just what you need.

What is a a reverse mortage? A reverse mortgage is a loan available to seniors, and is used to release the home equity in the property as one lump sum or multiple payments. The homeowner's obligation to repay the loan is deferred until the owner dies, the home is sold, or the owner moves. If you’re a senior (over 62) and a reverse mortgage makes sense for your circumstances, here are the fundamentals of what you need to know:

  • To qualify a borrower must be 62 years of age or older.
  • The borrower must live in the property as the primary residence.
  • There are no minimum income, asset or credit requirements.
  • There are no monthly payments required for as long as the borrowers occupy the residence as their    primary residence.
  • The funds can be taken as a lump sum, monthly payments, line of credit or a combination.
  • There are no restrictions on how the funds are used.
  • Loan proceeds are not considered income and will not affect Medicare or Social Security benefits.
  • There are no prepayment penalties.
  • Heirs may keep the home by paying off the balance on the reverse mortgage loan.
  • All applicants are required by federal regulation to seek 3rd party financial counseling by an approved Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) organization.

Check it out - Eight New Restaurants in Uptown Whittier

by The Domis Team

Not only has the real estate business been hit hard in this economy, the restaurant business has as well. Even in a good economy it is risky business to open a new restaurant.  In spite of this, in the past year and a half, eight new restaurants opened in Uptown Whittier centered around Greenleaf and Philadelphia Street.

Alan's Take Out
Fenix 5-4
Golden Ox
The Bottle Room
Spin Lounge
Vintage Cafe
Zi Teresa

Eight restaurateurs decided it was the right time and that Uptown presented the right opportunity, namely, ambience, favorable rents and acceptance from residents and city officials.  Just last year, city officials were taking a more hardnosed approach to local businesses and particularly restaurants. Traditionally, Uptown restaurants closed early and were more focused on family friendly establishments. The poor economy and empty store fronts encouraged a change in how restaurants are allowed to operate in Uptown.  Uptown citizens want restaurants that offer the same quality found in nearby Pasadena and Monrovia. They want good food, entertainment, later hours and restaurants that serve alcohol. City Officials realize ultimately this will increase revenue. And, despite some setbacks they are trying to work with the business community.

Follow our blog during the coming year as we check in on these 8 restaurants.
