What are the basic requirements for a reverse mortgage?

To be eligible for a reverse mortgage, you’ll need to meet the requirements set by the federal government:

  • All borrowers must be age 62 or older (this applies to all co-owners listed on the home’s title).
  • The home must be your principal residence. And it must meet standards set by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on property type and condition. You may be able to use your reverse mortgage to pay for any required repairs in order to meet these standards.
  • Eligible property types include single-family homes, 2- to 4-unit properties, manufactured homes meeting certain criteria, condominiums that are approved by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), and townhouses. Co-ops do not qualify.

Most Helpful-Right Decision I know that I made the right decision using Larry McAnarney. He was most helpful in going through the process of securing a reverse mortgage for me. I had spoken to at least three competitors of Larry, but none were as friendly and to the point as Larry was. Larry made the whole experience of a reverse mortgage pleasant. I would highly recommend Larry to anyone considering a reverse mortgage.
