Express Reverse Mortgage

The Express Reverse Mortgage is a simplified version of a traditional reverse mortgage.

The Express Reverse Mortgage is different to most reverse mortgages. You can only borrow a small amount of cash, but the upside is fewer restrictions based on your age and loan-to-value ratio, plus the rate is lower.

The Express Reverse Mortgage is really suited to a specific type of borrower. Obviously you need to own a home and be over the age of 60. But you're probably also looking for a small infusion of cash to cover specific expenses.

      Hi Oriono,

      There’s only one type of reverse mortgage and it usually involves borrowing some money now against the value of your property, with the funds to be repaid out of your estate. Usually, you provide some equity (or growth in value of the property) as part of the arrangement

      To get more insights and to better understand how it works, visit our Reverse mortgages page.

      For the Express Reverse Mortgage, you can view their rates and fees on their website.

      I hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Sarah

    Hi, I live in a lifestyle community, my house as it stands is worth approx $580,000 . Upon my death/sale of the house the value would be $446,000 after the fees payable to lifestyle. I hope you are able to find a reverse mortgage of $40,000 for me. Kind Regards. Dorothy.
