Reverse Mortgage Options

What is a “HECM” Reverse Mortgage Loan?

A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage(HECM) is a loan that allows you to access your housing wealth or in other words, convert a portion of the equity in your home to cash.

HECM’s or Reverse Mortgages are regulated by HUD and insured by FHA.  The proceeds from a HECM can be used to pay for almost any expense, need, or want you may have.

The loan does not require repayment as long as all the loan terms are met and until the last surviving borrower permanently moves out of the home or passes away.

It is important to remember that the borrower still owns their home, remains on title, and can sell at any time.
