 So, how do you go about purchasing a home in Spokane County (or anywhere in Washington) with a HECM (home equity conversion mortgage)? 

All or part of the proceeds from the sale of a current home are used for the down payment on the next home.  The remaining proceeds, if any, are safely deposited in a credit union or bank. Or, the funds can be used to pay down the open-ended reverse mortgage while leaving open the ability to borrow it back out again.


Example:  John and Mary, both age 65, and living in their two story family home with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, full basement, downstairs laundry and large yard, decide it is time to sell.  Their plan is to relocate to a home in King County, that is one story, much newer and requires minimal maintenance. 

1.  They hire a real estate agent to list their home for sale.   

2.  John and Mary talk to a good lender, one who specializes in reverse mortgage loans and conventional loans to discuss their options. The lender prepares loan comparisons - both reverse and conventional - and explains the benefits of each. 

 3.  The lender also provides a pre-qualification letter which helps John and Mary shop in the right price range.

I think many folks really don't fully understand the benefits of a reverse mortgage - you've done a great job explaining it to us, Jack.

Thank you.  Debb,  I think you are correct.  There has been a lot of guessing and misinformation about home financing using a reverse mortgage.
