HomeSafe® Proprietary Reverse Mortgages
The HomeSafe® proprietary reverse mortgage is a private loan for seniors through Finance of America Reverse that is not FHA-insured. HomeSafe® proprietary reverse mortgages are not bound by the HECM lending limit or standard FHA requirements; they have their own set of qualifications that differ from the FHA-insured HECM program.
The HomeSafe® proprietary reverse mortgage does have some of the same features as the FHA HECM program:
•No required monthly mortgage payments
•A line of credit could be available
As a reverse mortgage broker, we offer the HomeSafe® proprietary reverse mortgage in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California. If you live in or are considering moving to one of these states, reach out to us today for a custom snapshot of your options. Rates can change weekly and can affect your eligibility and benefit amount so it’s important to get updated information often.
Proprietary HomeSafe® reverse mortgages were created to meet the needs of clients who are aged 55+ and want to purchase or refinance a property that:
-Is or will be their primary residence
-Needs a loan amount of up to 4 million
-Is not FHA eligible
HomeSafe® proprietary reverse mortgages can be used to purchase or refinance a higher-valued home.
- Available to people 55 or older (in most states) on their primary residence
- Lower closing costs than a traditional HECM
- No mortgage insurance premium
- Gain access to more equity on high-value properties
- No capital gains tax*
- Access all of your loan proceeds in one lump sum OR a line of credit, in some states
- Can be used for some non-FHA-approved condo projects
- Max loan amount of $4 million
Compared to a HECM, HomeSafe® has low upfront costs and no mortgage insurance premiums, which can save clients thousands over the life of the loan. With similar borrower protections as the standard HECM and fewer restrictions, the HomeSafe® proprietary reverse mortgage may be the ideal fit for you.
