Home Equity Conversion Mortgages For 62 and Over

Real Estate Agent with C21 Alliance Realty Group

You may have been hearing more about reverse mortgage in the news.  Reverse mortgages are a special type of home loan that allows a homeowner to convert the equity in their home into cash in a monthly payment. They can give older Americans greater financial security to supplement social security, meet unexpected medical expenses, make home improvements, and allow them to keep their homes if they choose to.

If you are interested in a reverse mortgage, do not pay anyone for information about reverse mortgage this information that is provided free from HUD.


Homeowners 62 and older who have paid off their mortgages or have only small mortgage balances remaining, and are currently living in the home are eligible to participate in HUD's reverse mortgage program. The program allows homeowners to borrow against the equity in their homes. Homeowners can select from several different loan programs.

Requirements are:


•·         Minimum age 62 years or older


•·         The property must be owned


•·         The property must be the primary residence


•·         Attendance  in a consumer information session given by an approved HUD counselor

Barb, this is a program that can be helpful to seniors with equity in their home but cash poor.  Your tip should be heeded,get the information from HUD because there are people out there who are not kind to our seniors.
