Reverse Mortgage - Qualifications

A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), or Reverse Mortgage, is a special type of home loan that lets you convert a portion of the equity in your home into cash. The equity that you built up over years of making mortgage payments can be paid back to you. Unlike a traditional home equity loan or second mortgage, HECM borrowers do not have to repay the HECM loan until the borrowers no longer use the home as their principal residence or fail to meet the obligations of the mortgage. You can also use a HECM to purchase a primary residence if you are able to use cash on hand to pay the difference between the HECM proceeds and the sales price plus closing costs for the property you are purchasing.

What are the qualifications of a Reverse Mortgage?

  • Must be 62 years of age or older
  • Must live at the residence full time
  • Must take approved counseling course
  • Have sufficient equity in your home
