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.

Reverse Mortgage Experience Excellent service! We were lucky to deal with Larry McAnarney who with his know-how and involvement helped us through a very difficult time. He went above and beyond his responsibilities to help us in the reverse mortgage world. Thanks!

Very Professional from Start to Finish!! With little or no knowledge about the details involved in a reverse mortgage, I set out to find a company I could TRUST to help me make the best decisions on my Moms behalf of receiving a source of a supplemental income. I was referred to Larry McAnarney by a friend. I contacted Larry and he replied to my email in a timely and VERY professional manner. After speaking with him on the phone with my list of questions I felt very confident that this was the person I would be dealing with from here on out. His response time to my calls and emails was beyond excellent when it comes to customer service. I would highly recommend Larry to anyone who is looking into the possibilities of a Reverse Mortgage. I would have given Larry a SIX star rating if I could.... but, a five star will have to do for now.

Highly Impressed Upon my initial conversation with Larry I was highly impressed along with his credentials. As I continued to work along with him in obtaining all the documentation Larry requested, he came across some huge hurdles regarding my financial situation, but managed to resolve ALL  and was able to successfully acquire a reverse mortgage for myself. I cannot thank Mr. McAnarney enough for providing me with a comforting financial lifestyle.  Larry truly left me with a lasting and positive impression while accomplishing all that he could for me.  Emotionally now, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you are looking to take the next step to financial security and peace of mind, I highly would recommend the very ultimate and polished man in his field, Mr. Larry McAnarney.
