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.

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.

Recommended by My Financial Planner Larry was sooo patient and guided me through the whole process. My circumstances were more complicated than usual and when I would get frustrated Larry spoke to me in a calming voice and  explained that it was part of the process of obtaining approval. Thank you Larry

Quick Response I had questions about reverse mortgages and how they worked. Larry called and explained everything to us very well. He was quick responding back when I contacted him about some concerns I had while I was deciding to go ahead or not. I would recommend him to others, very polite and helpful. Was a pleasure working with him.
