Whether you would like to eliminate a mortgage payment or credit card debt, or maybe just add to your rainy day fund to help cover unexpected expenses.

Reverse Mortgage Purchase

 A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for Purchase is a reverse mortgage that allows seniors, age 62 or older, to purchase a new principal residence using loan proceeds from the reverse mortgage. 

 Down payment amount • HECM for Purchase: Required down payment between approximately 29% and 63% of the purchase price, depending on buyer’s age or Eligible Non-Borrowing Spouse's age, if applicable. (This range assumes closing costs will be financed.) The rest of the funds for purchase come from the HECM loan. This allows the buyers to keep more assets to use as they wish, as compared to paying all cash, while still having the flexibility of no required monthly mortgage payments. 

Reverse Mortgage Refinance

For senior homeowners who obtained a reverse mortgage several years ago, now they are older, and their house has gained value creating additional equity for them to tap into.
