What is a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage?

A reverse mortgage, or Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), is an agreement in which a homeowner abdicates the equity of their home in exchange for a lump-sum payment, fixed monthly payments, or a line of credit. If the homeowner is 62 years or older, this agreement allows the homeowner to remain living in their home while receiving monthly payments instead of paying off the mortgage.

By choosing a reverse mortgage, you gain the financial freedom that can improve your quality of life. With zero payments until your loan is paid off, you can stay in your own home and keep your title all while accumulating wealth.

What Should I Be Considering?
