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.

Great Service Larry McAnarney was great to work with. The whole process was fast and easy to understand. I had to assist my mother with this process due to my father's ailing health. I know that my dad would be very happy with the choices we made and the service that was provided to us by Larry.

Very Happy With My Decision My experience with Larry was just wonderful. He was available for all my questions and had all the answers, I am very happy with both my decision to obtain a reverse mortgage and that Larry was the representative I chose to work with. If anyone would ask me about a reverse mortgage I would not hesitate to give them Larry's name.

Larry is the Best!! I was referred to Larry and could not be happier for the result. I had a unique circumstance, I was just out of bankruptcy and I had to save my house from foreclosure. I just got in under the time to qualify from the better limits under the old rules for a larger line of credit. Because my bankruptcy estate was not fully complete I had to get a court order from the bankruptcy judge to remove my house from my bankruptcy estate. With a time limit of 12/31/13 to close the financing, which I had to have to pay off the amount due to get out of foreclosure. Once I had the court order, Larry did a miracle in getting the paper work complete to close. I ended up closing the reverse mortgage on 12/31/13 at 12:30 pm, just 4.5 hours left in the year to close the deal! Larry saved my house and life. I can never express the amount of gratitude I have for his great service. THANK YOU LARRY!!!!!
