HUD requires all reverse mortgage applicants to meet with an approved third-party counselor to help ensure that a reverse mortgage is the best choice for the borrowers.
After you’ve met with the HUD-approved counselor and submitted your application, an FHA-approved appraiser will survey your home. They will see whether it meets FHA standards, and then determine the amount the home is worth, which will in part determine the value of your loan.
Once your application has been processed and approved, you may choose to sign it. At that point, we will disburse your loan proceeds as a lump sum, a line of credit, or in monthly installments.
Reverse Mortgages in MS: FAQs
How are interest rates determined?
Interest rates can vary depending on current conditions, and an individual loan’s rate can be fixed or variable. An HECM lender will use an index and margin to determine the appropriate rate for your loan.
Do you make monthly payments on a reverse mortgage?
Borrowers have the option to make payments on a MS reverse mortgage. However, monthly payments are not required until a maturation event. For instance, the borrower might move out of the property, or pass away. If that occurs, the loan becomes Due and Payable.
How are reverse mortgages calculated?
Three factors will play into the value of your HECM loan: 1) the youngest borrower’s age; 2) the property’s appraised value; 3) current interest rates.
