GoodLife will review the reverse mortgage qualifications in Ohio with you, and discuss the terms of your loan. We will also help you ensure that a reverse mortgage is the best option for your finances.
The HUD requires all reverse mortgage applicants to meet with an approved counselor before receiving any funding. After meeting with this third-party counselor, you may move on to the next phase of the process.
During this stage, an appraiser will survey your home to verify that it meets FHA standards. They will also determine the amount the home is worth so we can determine how much you may be qualified to borrow.
After your application is completed, submitted, and approved, you may choose to receive your loan proceeds as a lump sum, a line of credit, or as a series of monthly payments.

Reverse Mortgages in Ohio: FAQs
What if I still have an existing mortgage?
If you own substantial equity in the home and meet all eligibility criteria, you may still qualify for an OH reverse mortgage. Your funding will first be used to pay down the balance on your existing mortgage, however, before we can begin to issue you the remaining amount.
Are there monthly payments required on an OH reverse mortgage?
Monthly payments are not required on an OH reverse mortgage until a maturation event, at which point the loan becomes Due and Payable. This includes the homeowner moving or passing away. However, borrowers do have the option to begin making payments prior to this date if they choose.
Which properties in Ohio qualify for a reverse mortgage?
Several types of property are eligible for an Ohio reverse mortgage, including single-family homes, townhomes, FHA-approved condominiums, or two- to four-unit properties. Properties with more than four units are ineligible for financing, as these are considered commercial properties. Vacation homes are also ineligible due to the requirement that states the property must serve as your primary residence.
