HECM (Reverse) Loans

What is a HECM Loan?

The Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) is FHA’s reverse mortgage program which enables you to withdraw some of the equity in your home. You choose how you want to withdraw your funds, whether in a fixed monthly amount or a line of credit or a combination of both. In order to qualify for a HECM you must be of retirement age, 62 years old. While HECMs are typically used to withdraw the equity in your existing home, you are able to structure a HECM for purchase as well.

HECM Loan Limits

HECM loan limits have a nationwide loan limit of $636,150. However, different counties have different limits on how much you can borrow for a HECM Loan. San Diego County has a loan limit of $612,950
