Reverse Mortgage Counseling

Reverse Mortgage Counseling

According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), a reverse mortgage is a special type of home loan that allows homeowners over the age of 62 to convert a portion of the equity in their home into cash. The equity that has been built up over years of making mortgage payments can be paid to the homeowner. Reverse mortgage counseling is required by all lenders. Certified counselors will educate interested homeowners about a reverse mortgage, discussing the pros and cons of taking one as well as the costs involved and other alternatives.
