SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Finance of America Reverse LLC (FAR), one of the largest reverse mortgage lenders in the US and a leading provider of retirement solutions, today announced that the eligibility age for borrowers is now 60 years old for its HomeSafe® Standard, HomeSafe® Flex and HomeSafe® Second products. Availability mirrors the states where HomeSafe proprietary products are already offered with a few exceptions. This change will not take effect in Texas and Utah, which have retained 62 as the minimum age for borrowers to qualify for such products.
“We are pleased to meet industry demand for this amendment but stress that borrower responsibility is paramount in factoring in whether this new timeline makes sense for their long term retirement goals,” said Kristen Sieffert, President of FAR.
“Leveraging the earlier age option can make sense for those that need to enhance their cash flow earlier in the retirement process,” said Dan Hultquist, FAR VP of Organizational Development. “The caveat is that this may extend the life of a loan which would mean that more interest accrues. So, as with any mortgage-related product, borrowers need to make sure that this is appropriate for their specific financial situation.”
FAR is the leading provider of propriety reverse mortgage products and offers the most diverse suite of products including; HomeSafe® Standard, HomeSafe® Flex, HomeSafe® For Purchase, HomeSafe® Second and HomeSafe® Select. The firm just announced the launch of its HomeSafe® Standard product in New York, the only proprietary reverse mortgage offering in the state and first of its kind to be approved in more than a decade. The firm also recently announced the launch of its HomeSafe® Select product in Florida, expanding the footprint of this groundbreaking line of credit offering.

When the loan is due and payable, some or all of the equity in the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage no longer belongs to borrowers, who may need to sell the home or otherwise repay the loan with interest from other proceeds. FAR may charge an origination fee, mortgage insurance premium, closing costs and servicing fees (added to the balance of the loan). The balance of the loan grows over time and FAR charges interest on the balance. Borrowers are responsible for paying property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, maintenance, and related taxes (which may be substantial). We do not establish an escrow account for disbursements of these payments. Borrowers must occupy home as their primary residence and pay for ongoing maintenance; otherwise the loan becomes due and payable. The loan also becomes due and payable (and the property may be subject to a tax lien, other encumbrance, or foreclosure) when the last borrower, or eligible non-borrowing surviving spouse, dies, sells the home, permanently moves out, defaults on taxes, insurance payments, or maintenance, or does not otherwise comply with the loan terms. Interest is not tax-deductible until the loan is partially or fully repaid.
