Buying a Home

Home Equity Conversion Mortgage for Purchase (H4P)

Did you know there’s a financing option specifically for homebuyers who are age 62 and older, which can help you get the funds you need to buy the home you want?

How does it work?

With H4P, you can purchase a home by combining a one-time investment of your own funds (down payment) with loan proceeds from a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) to complete the transaction. As with a traditional “forward”mortgage, the home you are purchasing secures the loan.

However, unlike a traditional mortgage, there are no monthly mortgage payments, which can help increase your cash flow. You own the home as long as you live in it. The loan does not have to be repaid until you sell the home or no longer live there as your primary residence. In order for the loan to remain in good standing, you must meet certain home ownership obligations — which include maintaining the property, and keeping current with property-related taxes and insurance payments.

The cash required (down payment) typically ranges from 45% to 65%, depending on your age. (The older you are, the more reverse mortgage proceeds you can receive.) This down payment range assumes closing costs will be financed into the loan.

Very Thoughtful and Professional Larry is a very thoughtful and professional person. He carefully and with great patience took me through the process and gained my respect and trust. Always available and always following up, without the sales push and aggressiveness of other companies I talked with. Great person to work with and I highly recommend him
