Georgia Reverse Mortgage Process

If you’re looking for a Georgia reverse mortgage company, GoodLife is backed by years of experience and is committed to helping seniors achieve the retirement they deserve. We break our reverse mortgage application process down into four simple steps:

Consultation

A GoodLife Reverse Mortgage Specialist learns about your unique financial circumstances and discusses whether a HECM may be a viable solution to help you reach your goals in retirement.

Counseling

Borrowers meet with a counselor approved by HUD, who acts as an objective third-party when explaining how a reverse mortgage in Georgia applies to your personal situation.

Application

During the application process, a certified appraiser will ensure the property meets FHA standards. They will also conduct an appraisal that helps determine the value of the property; you can estimate how much you may qualify to borrow by referring to our reverse mortgage calculator.

Funding

Once the loan application is approved, borrowers may elect to receive their proceeds dispersed as a lump sum, line of credit, or monthly installment.

How are reverse mortgages calculated?

The value of a reverse mortgage loan is determined by three factors: 1) the age of the youngest borrower; 2) the appraised property value; 3) the current interest rates.

How are interest rates determined?

Interest rates may be fixed or variable. Your lender will use an index and margin to calculate the interest rate of the loan during the application process.

Do you make monthly payments on a reverse mortgage?

Borrowers have the option to submit monthly loan payments, but repayment is not required until the reverse mortgage reaches a maturity event triggering its Due and Payable status.
