Reverse mortgages: 15,000 older Florida homeowners at risk of foreclosure and homelessness
Already, 16,654 reverse mortgage holders have gone into foreclosure in the five years that ended December 2017, the most by far in the U.S. and nearly double the second-most — in California. Those figures are based on an analysis by USA TODAY in partnership with Grand Valley State University, with support from the McGraw Fellowship for Business Journalism.
