Can I refinance my existing mortgage, home equity loan, or other debts with a reverse mortgage?
Yes. For many homeowners age 62 and older who are looking to refinance their mortgage(s) or consolidate debt to reduce their monthly bills, a reverse mortgage can be a more suitable solution. That's because a reverse mortgage has a flexible repayment feature, which puts you in control of how much you pay towards principal and interest each month. For as long as you live in the home, you can choose to pay as much as little as you like, or make no monthly loan payment at all — freeing up money for other purposes.
As the homeowner, you'll still have to pay property taxes and insurance, and keep the home in good shape.
