A Reverse Mortgage is a unique loan that allows you to access a portion of your homes equity. FHA loans are gov’t insured, proprietary loans are Lender-guaranteed.
Non-Recourse – No Payment Required *– No Set Term
* “The borrower must meet all loan obligations, including living in the property as the principal residence and paying property charges, including property taxes, fees, hazard insurance. The borrower must maintain the home. If the homeowner does not meet these loan obligations, then the loan will need to be repaid.”
