If you are 62 years or older, the HECM for purchase loan may help you buy your next home without required monthly mortgage payments, except for taxes, insurance, and general maintenance. The HECM for purchase is a reverse mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) that allows seniors to use the equity from the sale of a previous residence to buy their next primary home in one transaction. Regardless of how long you live in the home or what happens to your home’s value, you only make one initial investment (down payment) towards the purchase.
Cindy, who is 62, is selling her home that is free and clear for $157,000 and wants to buy a lake home property close to her daughter. The Realtor® showed her three properties priced at $157,000 close to her daughter, but none of them were lake properties. The next day she drove around the lake on the way to her daughter’s house and saw an open house sign of what could be her dream home. The Realtor® talked to her as she showed her the granite kitchen, view of the lake, and the steps going down to the dock. Cindy told her she absolutely loved it but couldn’t afford the $300,000 price tag. The Realtor® told her, with a reverse mortgage, she may be able to make her dream come true!
