How the Program Works
There are many factors to consider before deciding whether a HECM is right for you. To aid in this process, you must meet with a HECM counselor to discuss program eligibility requirements, financial implications and alternatives to obtaining a HECM and repaying the loan. Counselors will also discuss provisions for the mortgage becoming due and payable. Upon the completion of HECM counseling, you should be able to make an independent, informed decision of whether this product will meet your specific needs. You can search online for a HECM counselor who will help clarify our reverse mortgage information.
There are borrower and property eligibility requirements that must be met. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can complete a reverse mortgage application by contacting us. We will discuss other requirements of the HECM program, such as first year payment limitations, available payment options, the loan approval process, and repayment terms.
The following eligible property types must meet all FHA property standards and flood requirements:
- Single family home or 2-4 unit home with one unit occupied by the borrower
- HUD-approved condominium project
- Manufactured home that meets FHA requirements
