Converts a portion of home equity into cash with no monthly mortgage payments*
Majority of reverse mortgages are HECMs (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, a federally insured program)
*Taxes and insurance must still be paid on time. Any costs to keep up property maintenance must still be paid. Failing to meet these requirements can lead to default.

Is a Reverse Mortgage Right for Me?
Things to Consider
- Prepare for counseling meeting. Schedule a time now!
- Continue keeping property taxes and homeowners insurance current
- Home value, owner age(s), and current interest rate determine eligible amount to borrow
- The HECM is insured through FHA and is a non-recourse loan.
- The homeowner or their heirs will never be asked to pay back more than the value of the home, even if the debt has grown to be greater than the value.*
- *If the heirs choose to keep the home, they will need to pay off the loan at 95% of the fair market value of the home, as determined by a third-party appraiser.
