High property values in areas such as Orange County (Irvine, Anaheim Hills, Orange, Tustin, San Clemente, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach), Los Angeles County, San Diego County, Bakersfield, San Francisco and almost anywhere else along with the coast makes reverse mortgage an attractive option for seniors who need access to cash. Many seniors who purchased their homes 20+ years ago before property values increased, own their homes free and clear allowing them the option to unlock the equity in their homes.
