Can I Sell A Home With a Reverse Mortgage?

Posted on

For homeowners aged 62 and over, reverse mortgages are a decidedly sound way to pay the bills and expenses you can’t seem to cover on a fixed income.  Not only are you able to use and enjoy the equity you’ve built in your home, but you don’t need to concern yourself with shortfalls each month between social security checks.  For low-income seniors, a reverse mortgage can be the lifeline necessary to enjoy your golden years in your own home, without the stress and burden of economic hardships.

Reverse mortgages are a low-hassle way for elder homeowners to hold onto the home in which they’ve lived for many years.  However, when it’s time to sell, there can be a few hurdles for the family.  Whether the homeowner  has health issues and needs to transition into a care facility, or has passed away, selling a home with a reverse mortgage may have some red-tape attached.

Selling with a Reverse Mortgage

As the reverse mortgage is a loan, there will be some loose ends to tie up prior to being able to put the house on the market.  Repayment of the loan, typically up to 95% of the current market value of the home, must happen before the heirs or homeowner can sell.  Once the mortgage lender has been repaid, the heirs, or homeowner can then pocket the balance or use it to pay for care costs of the homeowner.

Selling your reverse mortgage home can be stressful. The responsibility can be overwhelming, should you need to go on to assisted living or a skilled nursing facility.  Heirs to the property, and those settling a loved one’s estate, have the option of repaying the debt through selling the home, paying off the loan, or, in some cases, handing over the keys to the mortgage lender to settle the debt.  If there is equity in the home, or if the appraised value is much higher than the debt, selling the home makes the most sense, even given the hassle of such a task.
