SWR and reverse mtg LOC

Results pertaining to the low interest rate and current lending environment indicate that a 5.0 percent SWR is attainable for the [standby reverse mortgage] strategy when home equity is at least 50 percent of the [investment portfolio] at retirement. The SWR for the [standby reverse mortgage] strategy is estimated to be as high as 6.75 percent for retirees in the low interest rate environment where home equity is equal to the [investment portfolio] at the beginning of retirement.

And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know.

Home equity is 50% of the investment portfolio? - ouch! Something seems out of balance there. Either downsize the home, or save more before retiring unless pension/SS income is already taking care of most of the needs.
Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
