What is a Reverse for Purchase Mortgage?
A Reverse for Purchase Mortgage is an FHA-insured loan that allows a senior, age 62 or older, to buy a home by paying about 50% down, with no future mortgage payments as long as they continue to live in the home.
Buyers are able to purchase a new primary residence, and obtain a reverse mortgage, in a single transaction.
*Homeowners must continue to pay property taxes,
homeowner’s insurance, and any applicable HOA dues.
How does it work?
Obtaining a Reverse for Purchase Mortgage is easier than you might think. We’ll work with you to make sure you qualify, then determine the loan amount for which you may be approved. Then, you can start shopping for your dream home. Once you find it, make a down payment of about 40 to 52 percent. Neither you, nor your spouse will be required to make another mortgage payment as long as you live in the home. However, you are still
responsible for paying property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, and HOA fees. All pertinent homestead exemptions (Military, Over 65, etc.) are acceptable. For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
