Hello: It is preferable to Refinance prior to retirement as your Income will help qualify you in the Lender's eye. Don't mention retirement to them to avoid their possible questions.

It would be wise to refinance prior to retirement (and with rate currently at record lows) because your income is one of the factors in determining if you are qualified for a refinance and at what rate.

Have you considered a reverse mortgage? This type of loan allows you to convert some of the equity in your home into tax free cash.This is an excellent way to improve your lifestyle and help you maintain your independence. Both a reverse mortgage and a conventional home loan mortgage use the equity you have in your home to generate cash. However, with a home equity loan you need to make monthly payments on the principal and interest. With a reverse mortgage you don't need to make monthly mortgage payments for as long as you stay in your home to qualify for this loan is easy. You must be age 62 or older. You must plan to live in your home as your primary residence. There are currently no income or credit score requirements. If you should have an interest, call me or email and I will answer any questions you may have without any pressure or obligation. I am a local agent in Maryland. Howeever, I can put you in touch with an agent. Also,you can research several websites. Try HUD.gov, or NRML.org. for a lender. Good Luck Ivan Lowe 410-979-1430 ilowe@southerntrust.com
