New Jersey Reverse Mortgage Process
We strive to deliver our customers with an easy and enjoyable experience, so we’ve simplified the reverse mortgage application process by breaking it down into four simple steps:
When you give us a call, a highly trained Mortgage Specialist will go over the HECM program in full detail, answering all the questions you may have along the way. We’ll also take the time to learn about your unique circumstances to see if you qualify for a reverse mortgage in NJ and, more importantly, whether this type of loan can help you achieve your goals. We’re committed to ensuring it’s the right fit for your needs, so there’s never any pressure to contact us for more information.
HUD requires all reverse mortgage applicants to attend an approved counseling session so that a third party can serve as an objective resource throughout the process. Your counselor will not advise you to take action in one way or another, but they’ll confirm your eligibility, review our loan summary, and address any concerns you might have.
If you decide to submit a reverse mortgage application, we’ll then assess your finances and arrange for an appraiser to visit your property and determine its fair market value. They’ll also confirm your home is in a safe, working condition per FHA standards—but we’ll provide you with an appraisal checklist well in advance so you can prepare for the inspection and streamline the approval process.
After approving your application, we’ll draw up the final documents for you to sign before a notary. Upon receipt of your official signature, we move quickly to fund the loan and disburse the cash proceeds in your method of choice.
