Nevada Reverse Mortgage LendersNevada's low cost of living and lack of income tax is why the state is a popular choice for snowbirds (seniors who move to a warmer state from the Northeast and Midwest in the winter) and seniors in general. Everyone knows about Las Vegas, but cities such as Reno and Henderson are also popular. Also known as home equity conversion mortgages, reverse mortgage loans are very popular among seniors who are house rich but cash poor. They use the money to pay for medical expenses, home improvements to retro fit their home to accommodate wheel chairs and make it more senior friendly.
