How HomeSafe can help

Understanding Reverse Mortgages

It is a loan that converts your home equity into cash. The unique benefit is that you don’t need to pay it back month after month. Interest and fees are added to the loan balance over time.

Borrowers must continue to pay taxes and insurance as always while upholding the terms of the loan.

Live your retirement dreams now that your biggest asset is working for you.

The loan is payable at the time you leave the home, and it is a non-recourse loan which means you or your estate cannot owe more than the value of the property.

With HomeSafe you can maximize your equity and enjoy loan amounts significantly higher than a HECM– up to four million dollars are available for qualified borrowers.

  • HomeSafe loan limits are higher than the government insured HECM loans, up to four million dollars, while offering similar protections and features to the borrower.
  • HomeSafe borrowers enjoy no mortgage insurance premiums, competitive fixed interest rates and no out-of-pocket funds required beyond the appraisal (except for purchase).
  • Plus, condominiums appraised at $500,000 or more do not require FHA approval.

A reverse mortgage is a loan that enables homeowners and homebuyers age 60* or older to convert some of their home equity into cash or a line of credit. Some loans also let homeowners finance a new home purchase. With a reverse mortgage, you make no loan payments†. You continue to live in and own your home.

Unlike a traditional home equity loan or home equity line of credit (HELOC), you don’t have to repay a reverse mortgage until the home is sold** or the last surviving borrower (or a non-borrowing spouse who meets certain requirements) no longer lives in the home. The homeowners must maintain the condition of the home and stay current with property taxes and hazard insurance.
