The Reverse Mortgage Reinvented
For a long time, traditional reverse mortgages, also known as Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs), changed the game for homeowners who wanted to access the valuable equity they’d built up over time. But HECMs have limitations on who can borrow, how much and which properties are eligible.
