Reverse Mortgages to Buy a Home – Without down payment

Reverse Mortgages have been popular for a number of years as a way for people over 62 to tap the equity in their homes without selling them.

Qualified Seniors in the USA use this program to either get a lump sum, or a monthly payment amount.

Others have used the Reverse Mortgage to consolidate their debt or/and refinance a Mortgage.

The first advantage is that there are no income requirements or limitations, and there is no minimum credit score (normal required credit score is 620).
