A reverse mortgage is a loan against your home equity, providing you with a cash advance that requires no repayment until a future time.
The Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, also referred to as HECM, is the only reverse mortgage insured by the US Federal Government. The Federal Housing Association requires a counseling session before you can apply for a HECM loan.
Our HUD certified HECM Counselor provides a face-to-face counseling session to explain the pros and cons of this complicated loan.
The session will provide you with all the information you need on how a reverse mortgage works, the cost involved, payment options, an analysis of your financial situation and any other options that are available to help you make an informed decision.After the session you will be provided a certificate of completion which is required by your lender for a HECM loan application.
