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.

Worked well for us! My wife and I had been discussing reverse mortgage for some time. We had heard all the pros and cons of doing this type of mortgage and the pros won out. We have a house that was built in 1976 and we have been in it since 1991. We have really done no updates on it and it was really needing some remodeling. We were just not able to afford all the stuff that it needed. We could not find anyone in our area that did reverse mortgage so I got on the internet and did some searches. A few days later I got a call from Larry McAnarney. I told Larry that I came from the "old school" and was use to doing business face to face, but since he was in Illinois and we were in Texas it made it a little difficult. However, to make a long story short, Larry explained everything to our satisfaction and we started the process. We had to go to a counseling session so that we understood the process. After that it was pretty simple. Thanks to Larry McAnarney.
