Basics of
Reverse Mortgage

Our experienced loan originators can help you decide whether a reverse mortgage, also known as a HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage), is right for you. In order to qualify, you must be 62 years or older and complete a counseling session with a HUD Certified Housing Counselor. Borrowers are expected to live in the home as their primary residence and pay homeowners taxes, insurance, and any applicable HOA fees.
