HECM For Purchase
A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for Purchase is a reverse mortgage that allows seniors, age 62 or older, to purchase a new principal residence using loan proceeds from the reverse mortgage. Now you can buy your home and have optional mortgage payments.

- You can choose to repay as much or as little as you would like each month
- No monthly principal and interest payments option available

As with any mortgage, the borrower must keep current with property-related taxes, insurance and maintenance as part of their ongoing loan obligations.
Jumbo Reverse Mortgages – also known as Proprietary Reverse Mortgages – are loans designed and offered by financial institutions that enable owners of high value homes to access greater amounts of their home equity than is available from the government insured HECM Reverse Mortgages.
