How a Reverse Mortgage Works in CO

A Colorado reverse mortgage may be able to provide you with supplemental cash flow in retirement, helping you achieve the financial freedom you deserve. They often benefit seniors in retirement by:

  • Helping with the cost of living on a fixed income
  • Settling outstanding debt
  • Covering medical bills and expenses
  • Installing home modifications to age in place
  • Financing large purchases
  • Pursuing travel and leisure

Also known as a home equity conversion mortgage (HECM), this program is overseen by the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development and insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). As such, borrowers are given certain protections under these non-recourse loans and are not required to make monthly repayments until the reverse mortgage has a maturity event, at which time it enters Due and Payable status.

Colorado Reverse Mortgage Process

We break our reverse mortgage application process down into four straightforward steps:


A GoodLife Reverse Mortgage Specialist educates you about the structure of a HECM loan and assesses whether it may be able to help you achieve your goals in retirement.


A counselor approved by HUD acts as an unbiased third-party and discusses your finances in greater detail.


If a HECM seems like a good fit for your situation, we’ll arrange for an appraiser to conduct a property valuation used to underwrite the value of your loan. To estimate how much you may be able to receive in loan proceeds, take advantage of our free reverse mortgage calculator.


Once your application is approved and you sign the final loan documents, GoodLife funds the reverse mortgage and distributes your proceeds in the method of your choice—either as a lump-sum, monthly installment, or line of credit.

Reverse Mortgages in CO: FAQs

Check out our reverse mortgage FAQs to find answers to questions you may have:

How are reverse mortgages calculated?

The principal amount you may be able to borrow depends on three variables: 1) the age of the youngest borrower; 2) the appraised property value; and 3) current interest rates.

How are interest rates determined?

Interest rates may be fixed or variable. In the latter case, your lender will use an index and margin to determine your interest rate.

Can I continue living in my home with a reverse mortgage?

Yes, a reverse mortgage enables eligible homeowners to access the equity stored in their home and convert it into usable cash without needing to vacate the property.
