Can you refinance a Reverse Mortgage?

April 29, 2021

YES! you can refinance a Reverse Mortgage, sometimes referred to as a HECM refinance.

Reverse mortgage rates have come down dramatically in the recent 12-months. By refinancing your current Reverse Mortgage you may be able to save equity and increase your current Line-of-Credit. If you currently don't have access to a Line-of-Credit, you may be able to add a Line-of-Credit you can access for any purpose you like and is not subject to earned-income taxes. Also, no payments are rquired on a Reverse Mortgage Line-of-Credit as opposed to a HELOC Line-of-credit you are required pay monthly payments on. With so much uncertainty in the world right now, it's better to not have to make a payment, then be required to make a payment.

You were probably grateful after receiving your first Reverse Mortgage and figured it was a done deal. However, years have gone by and you're needing to update your home. Your initial adjustable rate has adjusted up and now you believe a fixed rate would be a better call for the long-haul. It can be done! Refinance from an adjustable Reverse Mortgage to a fixed Reverse Mortgage is a little know industry secret most- Loan Officers don't even know.

Thinking of a remodel now or in the near future? You worked hard for your home over the years, now it's time to let your home work hard for you!
