The amount of money you can borrow with a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) has several factors including your age, what the current mortgage interest rate on your home is, the appraised value of your home and also your initial mortgage insurance premium.
It’s important that you are aware that the up-front costs you may incur including fees interest and ongoing mortgage insurance.
