Jumbo Reverse Mortgage

Jumbo reverse mortgages are proprietary loans available to seniors with home values between $650,000 and 6 million. Although qualifying factors are similar to traditional HECM loans, jumbo reverse mortgage lenders require borrowers to have a minimum credit score of 700. In addition to credit history, a financial assessment is required to ensure borrowers are able to pay the properties homeowners insurance and taxes.

Jumbo Reverse Mortgage vs HECM
Interest rates on jumbo reverse mortgages are typically 1-2 percent higher than a HECM, and in most cases, borrowers are only allowed to access 25 percent of their homes equity. Since most jumbo products have a 25 percent lending limit, a borrower with a home value below $2.5 million will save money by going with the HECM.
