Our specialty lies in educating seniors and pre-seniors on the advantages of using a HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage). Fairways reverse mortgage loan programs are a way to turn a portion of the equity in your home into tax-free* cash without having to make mortgage payments. As long as all loan terms are met. It also has the potential to enhance your quality of life and depending on your situation, may help to extend a retirement plan.

Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM) Loans
Federally-insured reverse mortgage loan backed by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). If you qualify, HECM loans would enable you to withdraw a portion of your home’s equity, which can be used for any purpose.
The Reverse Line of Credit (LOC)
A regular home equity line of credit (HELOC) requires monthly payments, does not grow, and can be called due by the lender at any time. A reverse mortgage line of credit has a clear cut advantage over the HELOC, in that it has a growth option that applies to the unused funds. If you take this out at 62 rather than 82, and leave the funds to grow instead of using them, you could have a substantial credit line available in later years when you may need it most.
Home Equity Conversion Mortgage for Purchase (H4P)
An H4P (a type of HECM) enables qualified senior homebuyers to purchase a new primary residence that better suits their needs and obtain a reverse mortgage in one transaction. You can use an H4P if you are able to use cash on hand to pay the difference between the HECM proceeds and the sales price plus closing costs for the property you are purchasing.

The Combination Home Equity Conversion Loan
Your reverse mortgage lender will give you three options, lump sum, line of credit, or monthly cash flow payment. You are able to use a combination of those to fit your specific needs or wants. If your needs or wants change, as long as there is money available, you are able to change your disbursement option for a small, one-time fee.
You can use any combination of the three different loan proceed options to fit your specific needs or wants.
“Our purchase transaction went extremely well and very timely, in fact, we closed earlier than expected. Our Fairway Loan Officer is such a hands-on servicer and his staff was extremely helpful all along the way. We were guided through the reverse mortgage process with knowledge and expediency. Fairway’s customer service is outstanding.“
