How a Reverse Mortgage Works in GA

Retirees aspiring toward greater financial freedom may benefit from a Georgia reverse mortgage. Also known as a home equity conversion mortgage (HECM), this financial product enables eligible homeowners to tap into a portion of their home equity and convert it into loan proceeds that can be used as disposable cash in retirement. A reverse mortgage in Georgia may help seniors by:

  • Supplementing or delaying Social Security benefits
  • Covering the cost of living expenses
  • Paying for unexpected medicals bills
  • Financing home repairs or renovations
  • Purchasing leisure and travel in retirement

Provided that you meet reverse mortgage qualifications in Georgia, the loan proceeds secured through a HECM can allow you to remain at home while living The GoodLife in Retirement. You can read GoodLife’s reverse mortgage guide for a complete explanation of how the HECM program works.

If you have remaining questions about reverse mortgages in Georgia, refer to our reverse mortgage FAQ for additional answers.

How are reverse mortgages calculated?

The value of a reverse mortgage loan is determined by three factors: 1) the age of the youngest borrower; 2) the appraised property value; 3) current interest rates.

How are interest rates determined?

Interest rates may be fixed or variable. Your lender will use an index and margin to calculate the interest rate of the loan during the application process.

Do you make monthly payments on a reverse mortgage?

Borrowers have the option to submit monthly loan payments, but repayment is not required until the reverse mortgage reaches a maturity event triggering its Due and Payable status.
