The GoodLife Advantage
Since 2012, our purpose has been—and still is—to transform and improve the lives of others by helping them access their home equity for greater security in retirement. We go above and beyond in our mission to innovate the industry with faster funding and lower fees.
GoodLife Home Loans® is the “direct-to-consumer” reverse mortgage lending division of Traditional Mortgage Acceptance Corporation (TMAC), founded in 2012 (NMLS # 971307), and headquartered in Bellevue, Washington. Prior to the creation of GoodLife Home Loans®, TMAC operated solely as a respected, well-capitalized secondary market purchaser of reverse mortgages and a Ginnie Mae issuer of mortgage-backed securities (“MBS”).
Ginnie Mae is a wholly-owned government corporation within the Department of Housing and Urban Development which guarantees the timely payment of principal and interest payments on MBS. As a Ginnie Mae approved MBS issuer, TMAC purchases funded reverse mortgages from many of the top reverse mortgage lenders in the United States and issues securities which are collateralized by “pools” of such loans. In this role, TMAC has served a critical, but indirect role, in creating opportunities for seniors across the nation by generating liquidity within reverse mortgage markets and lowering reverse mortgage financing costs.
In 2018, TMAC decided to make a positive and very exciting change. In addition to its role as a purchaser of funded reverse mortgages and a Ginnie Mae approved MBS issuer, TMAC launched its “direct-to-consumer” retail reverse mortgage lending division headquartered in Laguna Hills, CA, licensed and operating under the name GoodLife Home Loans®. This means GoodLife and TMAC can now both “directly” and “indirectly” help fund retirement longevity through reverse mortgages for more senior homeowners.
