How should you fund the purchase of your retirement home?

The majority of Americans who are of retirement age, or are approaching retirement age own a home - but that doesn't necessarily mean the house is paid for. While some people may own a home that is paid off in full, many others can expect to have a mortgage into their 70s and beyond. The Social Security Administration reports that 80% of those near retirement have $150,000 in debt with $100,000 plus being their housing costs.

Read these tips before buying a retirement home in Delaware

Delaware is a retirement hot-spot. Our sandy beaches, proximity to urban cities and generally low property tax rates make it an ideal spot to retire. If you are planning to purchase a retirement home in Delaware, consider the following tips:

Commercial real estate loan option for small businesses

A business owner in Delaware who is interested in purchasing, refinancing or renovating commercial real estate may be able to qualify for the Small Business Administration's 7(a) Loan Program. The government loan program allows small business owners to borrow up to 90 percent of the cost of their investment, or as much as $5 million.

Getting a lien removed in Delaware

A second mortgage is a secured loan that uses the borrower's home as collateral. Although the lender is a junior lien holder, it has the right to foreclose on the property if a payment or payments are not made. However, it may be possible to strip the lien through bankruptcy. Those who are filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be able to ask that the lien be stripped after the debt repayment plan has been completed.
