Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) for Purchase

A Savvy Strategy to Sell More Homes

The FHA-insured HECM for Purchase (H4P) can be a key ingredient in providing a way for your clients aged 62 and older to buy a home that better fits their lifestyle, without a monthly mortgage payment.*

Major Benefits for You and Your Clients:

  • More shoppers become buyers: H4P opens up a huge market of eligible buyers who may now be able to afford ahome!
  • Buyers increase spending power: Buyers can potentially afford more upgrades, or purchase a higher-valuehome.
  • Buyers can potentially purchase the home and amenities they want and conserve cash for retirement, as there are no monthly mortgagepayments.*

The illustration below outlines the possibility and power of H4P. The required purchase payment from the borrowers’ funds vary depending on the borrower’s age(s). The remaining amount is financed by the H4P proceeds. Illustrations assume closing costs are financed into the loan.

First three priced homes’ rate quotes generated 11/03/2017. The $679,650 home value rate quote generated 1/26/18. Rates are rounded down to the nearest $50 and subject to change.

*The borrower must meet all loan obligations, including living in the property as the principal residence and paying property charges, including property taxes, fees, hazard insurance. The borrower must maintain the home. If the homeowner does not meet these loan obligations, then the loan will need to be repaid.
