HECM Choice Now Offers All Payment Plans at Origination

Allows borrowers to access a fixed rate on the initial balance as well as future draws

Melville, N.Y., February 18, 2014 — Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC announced today it has expanded its HECM Choice product, the industry’s first U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)-insured, partial draw, fixed-rate Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), to make all payment plan options available at origination. Now HECM Choice allows borrowers to select any payment plan at loan origination, and access the full principal limit.

“We’re offering a fixed-rate loan with the option for borrowers to choose any payment plan at origination,” said Joe DeMarkey, director of product development, Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC. “For originators, this means simplicity; these are exactly the same payment plans offered with adjustable-rate loans. And for homeowners, it truly means they can have the security of a fixed-rate loan, plus greater flexibility. This expansion is designed with borrowers in mind.”

“HECM Choice was the perfect solution for our borrower,” said Teresa Herron, senior vice president and director of reverse mortgage lending, Homeowners Mortgage. “It gave him the flexibility he needed with all the benefits of a fixed rate. The process was very easy and we received our endorsement from the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) with no issues whatsoever. Now, with all payment options available at origination, we see HECM Choice from Reverse Mortgage Funding as an important product in our portfolio.”

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.
