Reverse Mortgages in South Dakota: FAQs
What if I still have an existing mortgage?
Borrowers who own significant equity in their homes can still apply for a reverse mortgage if they have an existing mortgage. However, HECM funding will first be used to pay down the outstanding mortgage debt, before any remaining funds can be disbursed to borrowers.
Are there monthly payments required on an SD reverse mortgage?
Monthly payments are not required on an SD reverse mortgage until a maturation event, like the death of the borrower or their departure from the home, at which point the loan becomes Due and Payable. Note that borrowers do have the option to begin making payments prior to a maturation event if they desire.
Which properties in South Dakota qualify for a reverse mortgage?
Several types of property are eligible for a South Dakota reverse mortgage:
- Single-family homes
- FHA-approved condominiums
- Two- to four-unit properties
Properties with more than four units are considered commercial and are ineligible for a HECM. Per the requirement that states the property must serve as your primary residence, vacation homes are also ineligible.
