Home equity conversion mortgage (HECM)
November 16, 2017 5:42 PM   Subscribe

We are considering taking out a home equity conversion mortgage so that we can move into a larger home. I've read a lot and am pretty well up on how it works but I am interested in hearing from anyone who has actually been through it. Anyone out there?

Sorry, confused...one of the conditions of a reverse mortgage is that the subject property remain your primary residence?

There are more cons than pros I think. Pages of conditions to be carefully considered and met. Also ages of self and spouse? In the event I did not go through with it, as I felt a property lawyer might be advisable
Maybe someone better qualified may be able to help you.
