About HECM Loans

Commonly known as a reverse mortgage, HUD’s HECM program was enacted under the Reagan Administration and has become a popular financial tool for helping seniors remain in their homes and maintain their quality of life in their retirement years.

Funds from a reverse mortgage may be used for whatever purpose the borrower wishes. The amount of funds available is based upon the age of the youngest borrower or eligible non-borrowing spouse, the current interest rate, and the lessor of the appraised value, the HECM mortgage limit, or the sales price in the case of a purchase transaction.

Our Reverse Mortgage Professionals can help walk you through how reverse mortgages work and can help you determine how much you may qualify to borrow.
