An FHA-approved appraiser will inspect your home to appraise its value for your loan. They will also ensure that the property satisfies FHA standards. You can use GoodLife’s reverse mortgage calculator to get a quick estimate of the amount you may be able to qualify for.
Approved applicants may choose to receive loan proceeds as a lump sum, a line of credit, or as a series of monthly payments after the application has been submitted. Disbursement will start soon after your loan has been approved.
Reverse Mortgages in Tennessee: FAQs
What if I still have an existing mortgage?
You can still apply for a reverse mortgage if you currently still owe money on a home loan — however, you must own significant equity in order to be approved. HECM funding will first be used to pay down the outstanding mortgage debt before the remaining funds are disbursed in your preferred form.
Are there monthly payments required on a TN reverse mortgage?
TN reverse mortgages do not require monthly payments until the loan becomes Due and Payable. This occurs under certain conditions such as the death of the borrower or the borrower moving out of the home. However, borrowers may also begin making payments prior to a maturation event.
Which properties in Tennessee qualify for a reverse mortgage?
From Sioux Falls to Rapid City, Tennessee reverse mortgage applicants may secure financing through any of the following types of home:
- 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 Tennessee reverse mortgage. Note that vacation homes are also ineligible, as these violate the requirement that the property you use to secure financing must be occupied as your primary residence.
