A reverse mortgage is a financial tool designed for homeowners aged 55 and above, enabling them to purchase or refinance their primary residence without the burden of monthly mortgage payments. In the case of a refinance, the reverse mortgage pays off any existing mortgage, freeing up the funds previously allocated to monthly mortgage payments, thus providing more discretionary income.
Homeowners who qualify for a reverse mortgage can choose to receive the funds as cash, a line of credit, or monthly payments, offering flexibility to meet their individual financial needs. These funds can be used for a variety of purposes, including home improvements, unexpected medical expenses, or in-home care.
The amount a homeowner qualifies for is determined by factors such as their age, home value, and prevailing interest rates. What makes reverse mortgages particularly appealing is their exemption from the requirement of monthly mortgage payments. This allows homeowners to retain ownership of their homes while leveraging their home equity to support their retirement.
The most common type of reverse mortgage is the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), available to individuals aged 62 and above. While all HECMs are reverse mortgages, it's essential to note that not all reverse mortgages are HECMs. Some reverse mortgages fall under the category of jumbo and proprietary loans, offered by specific lenders and not insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).
As your local broker, we have access to every HECM and proprietary program available, and our primary duty is to act in your best interests, guiding you toward the optimal solution that aligns with your unique financial goals.

When we met Tom and Susan, they were at the end of their rope with another reverse mortgage company out of state. They shared with us that they had been working on a loan with the other company for over 100 days with no end in sight. The other company was unfamiliar with the nuances of property ownership in Oregon and had hit a roadblock on their end. We were so thankful to have been given the opportunity to assist with this loan. Considering we are Oregon’s leading reverse mortgage brokerage, we are very experienced with many different situations. We had no issues closing a loan for these two lovely people and were happy to have them signing closing documents within 2 weeks of their first phone call with us!

With a reverse mortgage refinance, the equity in your home is converted into cash or a line of credit to access whenever you want or need. The cash you receive from a reverse mortgage refinance is yours to do whatever you like with, and no monthly mortgage payments are due on what is borrowed! This gives homeowners aged 55+ the opportunity to cash in on their equity, without the constraints of any mandatory monthly mortgage obligations. A reverse mortgage refinance may be a great option; a reverse mortgage expert at Northwest Reverse Mortgage can help you decide.
Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for Purchase (H4P) is a reverse mortgage that allows seniors aged 62 or older, to buy a new principal home using loan proceeds from a reverse mortgage. The HECM for Purchase Program provides the opportunity to purchase a new principal residence with HECM loan proceeds in a single transaction. The HECM loan does not require mortgage loan repayment until the borrower permanently leaves the home.
A reverse mortgage is a complex financial tool. When deliberating whether it’s a good fit, guidance is best left to the experts with the most experience. NWRM has a responsibility to ensure this program is a great fit for each client. We take the time to provide informed and reassuring guidance to ensure this step is taken in a professional and friendly manner, and that you enjoy an outstanding lending experience.
With an H4P loan, people can take out a reverse mortgage and buy a new home in the same transaction. Usually, Homebuyers have a large cash down payment that is about 40-50% of the new home's purchase price. They then use the reverse mortgage loan to borrow 50 to 60% against the home equity of the new property to complete the purchase of their new home. The homeowners are not required to make any monthly mortgage payments as long as they reside in the home and are expected to maintain the home and cover homeowners’ insurance.
A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) is an FHA reverse mortgage loan available to homeowners aged 62+ that requires no monthly mortgage payments. The HECM pays off any current mortgage they may have, freeing up the cash they had needed previously to make their monthly mortgage payment and allowing for more discretionary income. If the homeowner qualifies for more cash than the balance of their current mortgage or does not have a mortgage on their home, the funds can be paid to them as cash, a line of credit or monthly payments, it is their choice how to take their funds. The amount a person may qualify for is determined by their age, the value of the home and the current interest rates. The funds can be used for anything they may want or need, such as home improvements, unexpected medical costs, and in-home care. Because the loan does not require monthly mortgage payments, it allows the homeowner the flexibility to retain ownership of their home while they utilize the equity to fund their retirement. HECM reverse mortgages are the most common type of reverse mortgage. All HECM’s are Reverse Mortgages but not all Reverse Mortgages are HECM’s; some reverse mortgages are proprietary loans available through specific lenders and are not FHA loans. HECM reverse mortgages were created to give homeowners aged 62+ access to funds to stretch their retirement savings and provide additional financial security. Ultimately, the goal of the reverse mortgage program is to allow seniors to maintain their homeownership and live a more quality life.
Whether your goal is to refinance your current residence or purchase a new home, if you are aged 62+, that refinance or purchase can be done with an FHA HECM reverse mortgage. Oregon's local reverse mortgage broker, Northwest Reverse Mortgage can guide you to the optimal solution to your retirement funding.
