The Requirements

In order to qualify for a reverse mortgage, there are some guidelines that you have to meet. The good news is that the guidelines are fairly simple. Listed below are the requirements you have to meet:

  1. You must be at least 62 years of age.
  2. The home you are attempting to get a reverse mortgage on must be your primary residence. That means that you won’t be able to use a rental or investment property.
  3. You must demonstrate that you will be financially capable of maintaining your home. This includes paying for any repairs that are needed, as well as paying property taxes.
  4. You must meet with a HUD counselor. The HUD advisor is there to ensure that anyone that gets a reverse mortgage understands what they are doing and what benefits that they will get from it. Basically, the HUD advisor is there to make sure that you aren’t fully aware of your responsibilities when getting a reverse mortgage.
  5. Lastly, you also have to either have a house that is paid for outright, or that has a low amount left on the mortgage. A reverse mortgage is a loan, so it makes sense that the lender would want to ensure that they will be able to get their money back. A reverse mortgage unlocks a good chunk of the equity in your house, but it doesn’t unlock all of it. You are limited to how much money you can borrow so that when you leave your home, the lender can recover the money they are owed with the home is sold.

Summing It Up for MS Borrowers

If you are feeling a little confused by all of this, it’s actually pretty simple. You must be at least 62, owe little or nothing on the home, have the means to care for the home and be willing to meet with a housing counselor. If you have lived in your home for many years, and are nearing retirement age, then you probably qualify for a reverse mortgage. That means that you could be saying goodbye to your money problems forever in the near future when a reverse mortgage eases your financial burden, allowing you to enjoy life.
