Builder HECM for Purchase Program

Builders: Here’s a smart home financing option that can help you sell more homes and upgrades

Let me show you how our Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for Purchase home financing program can help you sell more homes, by making it easier for people age 62 and older to buy the home they desire.

  •  It can help you attract and capture a brand new — and rapidly growing — market of home buyers.Did you know that 22% of today’s home buyers are age 62 and older, according to a recent study by the National Association of Realtors®, and that number is expected to grow over the next decade?
  •  More shoppers can become buyers, because it allows them to keep more of their cash than they could with a conventional mortgage or an all-cash purchase.
  •  Buyers can get additional spending power for upgrades or to purchase a higher-end home (e.g., pick premium lot, more square footage, etc.)

How it works: Buyers can purchase a home by combining a one-time investment of their own funds (a down payment of typically about 45% to 62%, depending on borrower age) with loan proceeds from a HECM. This down payment range assumes closing costs will be financed into the loan.

As with a traditional “forward” mortgage, the home they purchase secures the loan. But unlike a traditional mortgage, monthly mortgage payments are optional while they own and live in the home as their primary residence — making buying a new home even more attractive.

As with any home-secured loan, the borrower must meet their loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, insurance, maintenance, and any homeowners association fees.

Comparing three ways to purchase a new home:


All Cash
Traditional Mortgage
HECM for Purchase
  •  Buyer owns the home free and clear
  •  Option to make a minimum down payment and limit upfront investment
  •  Builds equity as they pay down the loan
  •  Flexible repayment feature: Monthly principal and interest payments are optional*
  •  Gives the buyer the flexibility to get the home they really want
  •  Allows them to keep more assets to use as they wish
  •  Ties up a large portion of their money
  •  Monthly mortgage payments diminish the buyer’s cash flow
  •  The buyer’s equity in the home decreases if principal and interest payments are deferred, as the loan balance increases over time due to interest
  •  Requires a larger down payment than the traditional mortgage option


*  As with any home-secured loan, the borrower must meet their loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, insurance, maintenance, and any homeowners association fees. A HECM is a home-secured loan that must be repaid upon default or a maturity event, such as when the home is sold, all homeowners have passed away, or the last surviving borrower no longer lives there as their primary residence.

Many Thanks! We were hesitant about a reverse mortgage but our financial planner referred Larry McAnarney to us. So glad he did! Larry is very personable and professional. He explained everything to us and made sure we completely understood it all. Anyone would surely benefit by having Larry to consult with on a reverse mortgage. Larry, many thanks for all your help and peace of mind! Many Thanks!

Professional-Patient-Flexible-Thoroughly Knowledgeable Our financial planner suggested we look into a reverse mortgage to free up extra assets to help us use them for vacations, anticipated and unanticipated expenes,while protecting current cash flow. Additionally, having a line of credit provides peace of mind that we will have the cash available to meet whatever the future holds. Larry provided the answers to our questions and pointed out the way the process works in a way we could understand and the pros and cons of the choices available relative to the costs associated with each choice, no hidden fees, and a clear understanding of our obligations. Larry helped us to consider family issues that might arise so we could determine what our goals are upon our passing for our children. He is professional, patient, flexible, and most of all thoroughly knowledgeable.
