What is a Reverse for Purchase?

The Reverse for Purchase program allows seniors age 62 or older to purchase a home with a reverse mortgage and never make any monthly mortgage payments as long as you live in the home. This program is great for those seniors looking to purchase a home better suited to their needs, move closer to family, or move to a warmer area.

In order to purchase a home with a Reverse for Purchase, you will be required to have a minimum of 40% as a down payment on the home. The actual down payment percentage required is determined by your age; the older you are the less you have to put down. You will also be responsible for property taxes and insurance.
