Are You a Good Candidate?

  1. Do you plan on staying in your home for a long time?
  2. Is anyone on title at least 62 years of age?
  3. Are most of your assets tied up in a home with good equity?
  4. Is the property your primary residence?
  5. Do you own your home free and clear or do you have a mortgage on your home you would like to pay off?
  6. Are you able to pay ongoing property charges such as taxes and insurance?
  7. Is your home a single family residence, 2-4 unit building, or HUD-approved condominium or manufactured home that meets FHA requirements?


  1. Do you plan to move out of the home? Reverse mortgages are for long-term homeowners.
  2. Does your home have low equity? Low equity leads to high mortgage rates and a loan that is prohibitively expensive.

How Can a Reverse Mortgage Help You Reach Your Retirement Goals?

  • Do you want to retire early?

If you want to retire early without drawing on social security benefits, you can replace your loss of income with a reverse mortgage disbursement. Remember, the longer you defer social security benefits, the more you get in the long term.

  • Do you need more retirement savings?

If you need to stretch your retirement savings, whether it’s to remodel your home or support pay for long-term, in-home care, you can use a reverse mortgage to supplement your income in lieu of drawing on a retirement investment.

  • Do you want to pay down debt?

A reverse mortgage can help you pay off the balance on your mortgage or any other debt you may be holding.

  • Do you want to let your investments grow?

Retirement Funds can offer hassle-free investment growth during retirement. You can use a reverse mortgage payment to supplement your income while you allow your funds to continue to grow for future tax-free withdrawals.
