HECM Reverse Mortgage for
Home Purchase Calculator
With a home purchase, the HECM must be the only lien against your new home, you must occupy the home within 60 days from the closing date, it must be your principal residence, any construction must be completed (an occupancy certificate must be issued), co-ops and some manufactured homes are ineligible, and there must be no home flipping.

Proceeds from the HECM will be based on the lesser of the sales price or the appraised value of the home you are purchasing. And importantly, between the HECM proceeds and your own funds, enough money must be available to purchase the new home outright.

You may choose to provide a larger investment amount in order to retain a portion of the available HECM proceeds for future draws. This HECM 'Reserve' can be used for a line-of-credit or for monthly income. A HECM line-of-credit grows tax-free at the HECM's note rate plus half of one percent.
