Setting Limits On Reverse Loans

From the LA Times:

Are you 62 or older, own your own home and thinking about a reverse mortgage? HUD today approved a new national limit of $417,000 for Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs).

This is higher than previous lending limits, which varied by county and ranged from $200,160 to $362,790. Those considering tapping their home equity through a reverse mortgage can check out the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Assn.’s consumer website for a list of local lenders.
