Carrying a Mortgage into Retirement:

M

Repay or Invest?

any people imagine their retirement years to be relaxed and stress-free, as they should be. You’ll have much more time for traveling, playing golf or anything else you didn’t have time to do while focusing on your career. You’re already saving for retirement, but what about your mortgage? If your home-financing program will extend into your retirement, would it benefit you more to pay it off before you trade your pinstripe suit for a swimsuit and Hawaiian shirt? Or would holding off and investing your funds be the better financial decision? Everyone’s circumstances are different, and you should certainly seek the advice of your financial planner, accountant, mortgage professional and anyone else who may assist with your finances, but here are some basics to get you started on deciding what to do with your home loan as you head toward retirement.

4

Before You Decide Before you decide whether or not to repay your mortgage prior to retirement, there are some things that need to be taken into consideration. Determine whether you’re on track for your retirement savings goals, if you have enough coverage for your insurance needs and whether you’ve established an emergency fund. Then take a look at the terms of your mortgage. While adjustable-rate mortgages offer lower initial payments, homebuyers often plan their finances based on the assumption their mortgage payments will stay the same. A fixed-rate home loan provides a steady interest rate, and can be refinanced should rates fall dramatically. This can help you plan more accurately when you’d like to have your mortgage paid off. You’ll also need to know whether your home-financing program has a

prepayment penalty so you can determine if the fees charged for paying early are worth the cost. Two Sides to the Coin There are many arguments for both sides of the issue. Obviously, obtaining full ownership of your home offers peace of mind and relief from monthly payments. But depending on your individual circumstances, there is money to be saved and made by paying your mortgage early or by allowing your home loan to extend into retirement. Take note of your loan agreement’s amortization schedule. Your mortgage company disclosed up front how much you will pay over the life of your loan, and including your interest, it will likely be more than twice the purchase price of your home. Depending on how early you are

• their preferred combination of risk and return and still pay off their mortgage. Paying off Your Mortgage Made Easy If you do decide to pay your mortgage early, a popular and easy way to do so is to include an extra sum in your monthly payment and earmark it toward reduction of your principal. By some estimates, an extra mortgage payment each year can reduce the life of a loan by six years. There are many online calculators to help you determine how much interest you can save and by how much time you can cut your loan.

willing and able to pay it off, you could save a significant amount of money.

to use the taxable accounts to repay your mortgage before dipping into your 401(k) or IRA.

Paying off your home loan can allow for tax flexibility in your golden years. Your marginal tax rate will be minimized, and if you own your own home, you won’t be paying taxes on that either. You likely have a tax-deferred retirement plan, and if you are taking more income to make debt payments, your tax burden will increase.

As illustrated in the chart, you should repay your mortgage if your after-tax return on risk-free assets such as insured cash deposits and U.S. Treasuries is less than your after-tax mortgage interest rate, and to hold off if not.

On the other hand, using money that could go toward extra mortgage payments could be contributed to your workplace retirement plan. Employers often match 50 to 100 percent of your contributions on up to 6 percent of your pay. This is essentially a guaranteed return on your investment. Investing money is another alternative. According to market researcher Ibbotson Associates, a combination of 60 percent stocks, 30 percent bonds and 10 percent cash would earn an average of more than 8 percent per year in most 20- to 30-year periods, based on historical returns. Other debt is also an issue. If you have additional debt, it is most likely accruing at a higher interest rate than what you are paying on your home loan. It’s much better to pay off debt with nondeductible interest before you jump ahead on your mortgage payments.

If you are considering taking the riskier route and investing your available cash in stocks instead of repaying your mortgage, you are essentially betting with borrowed money. Few people are willing to take that risk. However, Webb examined two scenarios in which households invested in a mix of stocks and bonds. Scenario 1 used 50 percent of their available cash to pay off their mortgage, and then divided the remaining half evenly between stocks and bonds. Scenario 2 did not pay off their mortgage, but instead invested 25 percent of their available cash in stocks and 75 percent in bonds. He determined that assuming the mortgage interest rate and the return on the bonds were similar, the two situations were identical. Because both scenarios had the same amount invested in stocks and Scenario 2 spent two-thirds of their return on their bonds toward their mortgage payments, they both made the same amount of money. Therefore, Scenario 2 could attain

Another way to pay your loan off early is to send any raises and bonuses you receive as your career advances directly to your mortgage company. If you were doing well enough without them, you won’t miss it too much when you put it to good use. Also, with your contribution to the Social Security payroll tax dropping from 6.2 to 4.2 percent for 2011, you could consider putting that extra money toward your mortgage. Enjoy Yourself! Of course, only you can determine what is best for you. Your financial planner and other professionals can provide expert guidance to ensure your golden years are as idyllic as you envision, but this information should put you on the right track to making an educated decision. Regardless of what you choose, enjoy your retirement. After working so hard your whole life, you deserve a break!

Repaying vs. Investing In his brief titled “Should You Carry a Mortgage into Retirement?” research economist Anthony Webb of the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College discussed a few possibilities for the retired person to make the most of their finances. First, if you hold assets in taxable and tax-deferred accounts, it makes the most sense

So Your Client is a Wealthy Foreign National

n some respects having a wealthy foreign national as a home buyer is just like having any other wealthy client. There are no visa requirements for a person to buy a home in the United States, so a foreign national who enters as a tourist is perfectly within his/her rights to purchase a home or two in the United States. However, there are certain things that every foreign national should be aware of when purchasing a home in the U.S. Whether a person enters the U.S. under the visa waiver program (some nationalities, for example Canadians, do not require a visa to enter the U.S.) or with a tourist visa, there are key limitations to their status in the U.S. While a tourist visa allows a person to visit the U.S. for either business or pleasure (shopping, sightseeing, etc.), it does not allow them to engage in activities that may indicate that they have long-term intent to stay in the U.S.

our government views foreign visitors. The Department of State’s Consular Officers who review applications for tourist visas do so with the assumption that everyone who is applying to visit the United States wants to live here. Enrolling your kids at the local elementary school is pretty strong evidence that even though you came in as a tourist you have long term plans to stay in the U.S., which won’t look good once a perceptive immigration or Department of State official takes notice.

What not do in the U.S. as a Foreign National… So your client has purchased a home in the U.S. and as a home buyer he or she will be required to pay all of the requisite taxes to the requisite entities, which invariably include school districts. Your client may understandably believe that since they are contributing to the tax base for the local school district they can enroll their children in school. Do not look to the school districts for guidance; they will admit any school age child that comes their way. But for immigration purposes this is a big no-no.

What to do in the U.S. as a Foreign National… Depending on their individual circumstances, there may be several options available for individuals who wish to live and work in the United States. The foreign national may qualify for a nonimmigrant visa which would allow him/her to live and work in the United States; these visas include dependent visas for qualifying family members. Exactly which type of visa often depends on the country of origin or nationality of the individual foreign national. For example, Mexican Nationals have options based on NAFTA. These include trade visas (E-1), investment visas (E-2) and visas for professionals (TN); other countries have similar visas (except for the TN) based upon individual treaties with the United States. Generally, depending on individual circumstances, foreign nationals may potentially qualify for a specialized knowledge visa (H-1B), intra-company transfer for managers or executives (L-1A) or essential employee intra-company transfer (L-1B) or even a student visa (F-1).

Just as a foreign national who is visiting as a tourist cannot work for a company in the United States, they cannot enroll their children in public schools. This has something to do with a concept that is the cornerstone of how

Foreign nationals with long-term interest in immigrating to the United States must always utilize a dual strategy; one which utilizes both short term and long term planning. In the short term they must have a strategy for living and

10

working in the United States; they must have a non-immigrant visa that allows then to live and work in the U.S. In the long term they must have a way to become a permanent resident; there are different paths to permanent residency; most of which require that a company or immediate relative to petition for the foreign national. There is a process, EB-5 by which the foreign national can invest $500,000 or $1,000,000 and become a permanent resident; unfortunately that $1,000,000 home that has been purchased is not a qualifying investment for purposes of the EB-5 permanent residency process. Navigating Immigration’s Alphabet Soup It is impossible to fully understand the nuances of immigration law by simply reading a brief article. The good news is that, as a real estate professional, it is not required to be equipped with immigration legal knowledge. As a realtor working with a foreign national it is not your job to advise clients regarding immigration issues, but you are in many ways the client’s conduit to living in the United States. By directing a client towards a licensed attorney, whose primary practice is immigration law, you will provide the kind of value added service that will have a positive effect on your clients experience in the United States. Happy clients increase the incidence of referrals and referrals mean success in any language.

magine…a tropical island with one of the top ranked beaches in the world only 4 miles off of the eastern coast of Mexico. Imagine… sun-filled days spent fishing, sailing, swimming, or snorkeling in the refreshing waters of the Caribbean just off of your own private dock. Imagine…visiting some of the most renowned Mayan archeological sites in existence. Imagine…dining on the finest international cuisine. Imagine…enjoying a cocktail or local brew off of your private terrace at day’s end as you gaze at azure waters and are cooled by gentle ocean breezes. Now, just imagine yourself partaking of these pleasures, all of which are either right out of your door or in close proximity, as the proud new owner of one of the most spectacular villas ever offered for sale on Isla Mujeres ― Vista de la Luz. Over four years of planning and construction went into the completion of this custom villa perched high on the cliffs overlooking Cancun and the Caribbean.

Updated Classic Houston, Texas Renowned Houston architect John Staub was famous for architectural diversity. His stunning homes ranged from medieval châteaux to classic Georgian and Greek Revival structures with a twist Staub liked to call “Latin Colonial.” This classic River Oaks home, completed in 1933, is rendered in the Tudor/Jacobean transition style and exhibits Staub’s signature understatement and control. According to Howard Barnstone in his book, The Architecture of John F. Staub, this house was inspired by Montacute House, a manor Staub had seen in Kent in 1929. As with many of his houses with the luxury of expansive grounds, Staub reversed the front and rear elevations to insure private arrivals, and lengthened the approach with a curving sweep of drive around the north elevation. A two-story addition was completed by noted architect P. M. Frost in the 1970s which greatly expanded the interior space while retaining the home’s iconic, street-side façade. Five bedrooms, four and one half baths, 4-car detached garage. House – 7,706 square feet (HCAD). Lot – 71,540 square feet (HCAD). $7,750,000
