Illinois Reverse Mortgage Process

The experts at GoodLife will walk you through the entire reverse mortgage application process, and we’ll gladly answer any questions you may have that arise along the way so that you never feel kept in the dark. We break the process into four simple steps to make your experience easy and enjoyable:

Consultation

First, we’ll go over all the details about the HECM program while also taking the time to carefully hear your story. We want to know about you so that after step one, we’ll be able to determine if you qualify for a reverse mortgage in IL and whether one might provide a viable solution to help you achieve your financial goals.

Counseling

GoodLife is a trusted reverse mortgage company lending in Illinois and we take pride in being the top-rated lender on Trustpilot, but you’ll still need to speak with a counselor per HUD’s requirement. We want you to feel safe and protected every step of the way, and so do they, so the counselor is there to act as an unbiased resource throughout the process.

Application

After meeting with a counselor and submitting your loan application, an appraiser will inspect your home to determine its value and ensure it complies with FHA standards. The appraised property value helps us determine the size of the loan you qualify to borrow, but you can also use our reverse mortgage calculator to get a free estimate.

Funding

Once your application is approved, we’ll fun the loan and you can choose how you’d like to receive your cash proceeds—either as a lump sum, line of credit, or monthly installment. By originating IL reverse mortgages in-house, we’re able to move fast and fund your loan quickly, so you can start spending the money however you like.
