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.

The Customer Comes First Her I have been very happy with all of my dealings with Larry McAnarney. He has the drive needed to handle all the details in a timely manner but explain the steps and concepts in an easy to understand and gentle, laid back manner. Never a hard sell with Larry. With a plan to close the transaction before the first of the month, Larry kept the momentum going until all was settled with four days to spare. He was available for questions and advice at all times which was very beneficial because of the timetable involved. Professional and engaging. Win-Win-Win.
