What is a Reverse Mortgage Loan? **
A reverse mortgage loan or HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage) is a loan available to seniors over the age of 62 which allows them to convert the equity in their home into cash. The HECM is backed by the Government and the most popular reverse mortgage on the market today. In addition to the HECM, some lenders today are providing private reverse mortgage options that augment the HECM for Jumbo Loan Amounts and non-government approved condominiums. A reverse mortgage loan can also be used to purchase a home.
