A reverse mortgage loan requires borrowers to be at least 62 or older, live in a HUD approved property and of course have home equity. Many experts will recommend downsizing your home or exploring any other possible option before opting for a reverse mortgage since it is technically a negative amortization loan. However, many seniors do not have enough income to qualify for traditional loans which leads to reverse mortgages being the last viable option.
