About Reverse Mortgages
What is a reverse mortgage, really?
Unlike a traditional mortgage or a second mortgage, no repayment is required until the borrowers no longer live in the home, or if they don’t pay the regular property taxes and homeowners insurance–that’s a rule.
Most people who get a Colorado reverse mortgage stay in their home without ever having to make another house payment, until the last one of the borrowers die.
Am I eligible for a reverse mortgage?
To be eligible for a reverse mortgage, the FHA requires that all unmarried homeowners are at least 62 years of age, and at least one spouse of married homeowners must be at least 62-years-old. That’s the most important thing.
Your home can either be owned outright, or have enough equity that it can be paid off at closing with proceeds from the reverse mortgage. You get the rest.
The homeowners all must live in the home as their primary residence.
Most home types qualify, including: single family residences, townhomes, condominiums, and manufactured homes.
