Reverse Mortgage Loans

Discover the HECM for Purchase Loan

If you are at least 62 years old, the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for Purchase Loan may help you buy your next home without required monthly mortgage payments.

The HECM for Purchase is a Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insured reverse mortgage that allows mature adults to use the equity from the sale of a previous residence to buy their next primary home in one transaction. Regardless of how long you live in the home, or what happens to your home’s value, you only make one initial investment (down payment) towards the purchase.

Why Consider the Loan?
No matter what your needs may be, a HECM for Purchase loan may help:

    • Eliminate existing monthly mortgage payment
    • Increase your purchasing power
    • Pay less up-front investment than a cash purchase
    • Right-size to a smaller, lower maintenance home
    • Buy a home closer to family or friends
    • Lower their cost of living during retirement
    • Enjoy carefree living in a senior housing community.
