REVERSE MORTGAGE COUNSELING
TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT CALL
A reverse mortgage, also known as the home equity conversion mortgage (HECM), is a financial product for homeowners 62 or older who have accumulated home equity and want to use this to supplement retirement income. Unlike a conventional forward mortgage, there are no monthly mortgage payments to make. Borrowers are still responsible for paying taxes and insurance on the property and must continue to use the property as a primary residence for the life of the loan.
In order to be considered for a reverse mortgage, the U.S. government requires that you participate in a reverse mortgage counseling session with an approved non-profit agency like Horizon. We currently offer national over the phone counseling in 47 states. (MN, VT, MA excluded)
During a counseling session, we will explain how reverse mortgages work, including payment options, costs, tax implications, benefits and drawbacks. After completing the mortgage counseling session, you will receive a certificate that lenders require as part of the loan application. Our goal is for you to understand your options so you can make an informed decision on whether a reverse mortgage is right for you.
