Do I have to be in credit trouble to get a Reverse Mortgage?
Question: I've heard that to get a Reverse Mortgage I have to be 62 and be in credit trouble. I am not in credit trouble, but don't have a lot of retirement income. Can I still get a Reverse Mortgage?
Answer: This is a question I am asked often, and thank you for asking.
It's a rumor that you have to be in credit trouble to get a Reverse Mortgage, but you do need to be 62.
I will have to run a credit report initially when you apply for a Reverse Mortgage, but only to verify the loan amount that is currently outstanding on your home. Really the only thing you need is equity in your home! Give me a call and I can determine how much equity you have - you might be surprised. I will ask you a few simple questions and it only takes a few minutes.
The beauty of a Reverse Mortgage is that it gives seniors financial independence, security, and peace of mind they would not otherwise have.
