Are you retired and thinking about moving to a new location? This is common, as 64% of retirees expect to move at least once during retirement.

Whether you want to relocate to a warmer state or move across your city to be near your grandchildren, there’s a home loan that could help make this happen: HECM for Purchase (H4P).

H4P allows seniors aged 62 and older to purchase a home with approximately 50% down. Following your down payment and loan, you’ll have no monthly mortgage payments as long as you live in the home.*

H4P allows seniors to buy homes that better fit their needs

In addition to helping retirees move to a different location, H4P could offer other advantages. These include:

  • Greater home purchasing power
  • The ability to move into a home that better fits your needs
  • Reduced out-of-pocket expenses with not having a monthly mortgage payment*
  • Possibly being able to retain more of your life savings
  • Keeping the title to your home

H4P eligibility requirements

To be eligible for this exciting loan program:

  • You must be 62 or older
  • The property must be your primary residence (vacation homes are ineligible)
  • The money used for the down payment must come from checking, savings, investments, gifts or an existing house sale (it cannot come money acquired through debt)
  • You must be able to maintain the home and pay property taxes, insurance, and HOA dues
