Top Reverse Mortgage Lenders in Oregon

The reverse mortgage, the most common of which is the home equity conversion mortgage (HECM), is an option for seniors in Oregon who have built up substantial home equity. These loans are relatively easy to obtain compared to more conventional forward mortgages.

The most important qualifications are:

  • you are 62 or older
  • you have built up substantial equity
  • you are using your home as your primary residence

As part of the HECM program, Oregon borrowers are required to take part in counseling. This counseling ensures that the senior understands the loan and has compared it to other options available to him or her.

Homeowners must also be aware that they are still responsible for basic maintenance on the home and must continue to pay taxes, insurance, and Home Owner’s Association (HOA) fees if applicable. Borrowers now undergo a financial assessment to ensure that they can continue to meet these obligations.

The property remains in the homeowner’s possession until they die, no longer use the home as their primary residence or they sell the property. When one of these situations occurs, the loans become due to the lender. In cases of death or the homeowner’s transfer to an assisted living situation, the lender will initiate the sale of the home in order to recompense their investment. They retain the amount of the value of the home, with any additional funds going to the estate.

To get a feel for what you may be eligible to receive, you may use our calculator, which is located here. It does not account for everything, particularly because rates and fees vary based on your lender and your location, among other things. However, the calculator does not require personal information and can be used to give you a quick idea of whether it makes sense to continue your research.

To help you better understand the marketplace, we’ve compiled data on the top lenders in Oregon, both of all time and from 2012 to the present. Why make this distinction? In 2012, large banks such as Wells Fargo and Bank of America stopped originating HECM loans. You will see their names in the list of largest lenders of all time, but you cannot get a reverse mortgage from either one today.
