Washington D.C. Reverse Mortgage Process

The reverse mortgage application process may vary by lender, but at GoodLife, we break it down into four steps.


First, we learn about you, your goals, and your circumstances to establish whether a reverse mortgage in Washington D.C. could be a good solution to your needs.


Before submitting your application, HUD requires all potential borrowers to attend an approved counseling session with an objective third-party who can provide additional clarity into the HECM program.


During this process, an FHA-approved appraiser will conduct a property valuation and confirm it meets the eligibility criteria.


After the loan is approved and closing costs are paid, GoodLife will distribute the loan proceeds. To receive an estimate of how much you may be able to borrow, use our free reverse mortgage calculator.
