Among seniors living in MD, there is a growing interest in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s HECM program. This program, better known as a reverse mortgage, provides a way for individuals who are 62 or older to tap into their home equity while remaining in their houses. We put this page together to provide important information related to this market in Maryland, and we’ve included other relevant senior housing resources that we hope you will find useful:
