Reverse mortgages (sometimes called "home equity conversion loans") give older homeowners the ability to tap into home equity without having to sell their home. The lender pays you funds determined by the equity you've built-up in your home; you get a lump sum, a monthly payment or a line of credit. The borrowed money doesn't have to be repaid until the homeowner sells the residence, moves away, or dies. At the time your home has been sold or is no longer used as your main residence, you (or your estate) have to repay the lender for the cash you received from the reverse mortgage plus interest and other fees.

Who can Participate?

The conditions of a reverse mortgage often include being 62 or older, maintaining your home as your primary residence, and holding a low balance on your mortgage or owning your home outright.

Many homeowners who are on a limited income and have a need for additional money find reverse mortgages helpful for their situation. Interest rates may be fixed or adjustable and the money is nontaxable and doesn't interfere with Medicare or Social Security benefits. Your lending institution can't take the property away if you outlive your loan nor may you be forced to sell your home to repay your loan amount even when the balance is determined to exceed property value.
