How to Know if My House Qualifies for a Reverse Mortgage

Are you looking for ways to save money to have a comfortable future? A reverse mortgage may be the perfect solution for you. It is a loan for individuals aged 62 or older to help them access a portion of their home equity. From the team at GoReverse Mortgage, we’re here to help you determine whether your home is qualified.

Homes That Does Qualify:

  • Single Family Homes
  • Multi-Family Homes
  • Condominiums
  • Manufactured Homes
  • Farms

As long as you occupy the home as your primary residence, it may be eligible for a reverse mortgage. There are U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requirements that must be true for a manufactured home to qualify. A farm on agricultural land is only eligible based on the land’s acreage and the house’s value.  

Homes That Don’t Qualify:

  • Second Homes
  • Mobile Homes
  • Co-ops
  • Multi-Family Homes with Over 4 Units

These homes are unsuitable for a reverse mortgage because the purpose of the loan is to help senior homeowners in their primary residence. For instance, a vacation house is considered a second property. The loan only covers permanent property attached to the land. Co-ops are typically run by corporations and secured by shares; therefore, it is not residential piece of land.
