HECM Choice Now Available to Principal Agents and Brokers

Underwriting begins for Reverse Mortgage Funding’s new partial draw, fixed rate HECM

Melville, N.Y., January 8, 2014 — Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC announced today that HECM Choice — its new partial draw, fixed rate Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) product — is now available to principal agents and brokers.

This is the latest step in Reverse Mortgage Funding’s rollout of HECM Choice. At the time of the product’s launch last month, HECM Choice was immediately available only to approved correspondent lenders with a phased approach to launch to wholesale and principal agents in January.

“The introduction of HECM Choice to the industry has been successful, the launch has gone as planned, and the product is available today to all lenders,” said David Peskin, president, Reverse Mortgage Funding. “We are pleased to bring HECM Choice to a broader base of homeowners through the addition of principal agents and brokers.”

“HECM Choice is a win for the borrower, the industry, and for business partners,” said Mike Mooney, national sales manager for the third-party channel, Reverse Mortgage Funding. “It offers borrowers a fixed rate HECM that does not require them to withdraw all of their available loan proceeds at closing. Borrowers are given the benefits of a fixed rate HECM, but with the flexibility that has historically been offered only with an adjustable rate HECM loan. It is fully compliant with FHA guidelines, and like all FHA insured HECMs, Choice offers the borrowers all payment options. HECM Choice provides an outstanding product alternative for our business partners.”

A More Flexible Home Equity Loan

If you’re 62 or older, there is a home equity line of credit option that offers greater financial flexibility than a traditional Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). It’s called a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) line of credit. 
If you have an existing mortgage or home equity loan you could refinance them with a HECM line of credit and get enhanced benefits, including a flexible payment feature and a line of credit that GROWS when left untouched.
As with any mortgage, you must meet your loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, insurance, and keeping your home in good condition.
