Leslie Corcoran: A reserve mortgage is basically taking an individual's home and looking at that the value of that home and then paying them a set dollar amount for the rest of their life - either via - similar to an annuity. They can also get a line of credit or a lump sum payment. But basically, paying them based off the value of that house.
