Physical property and equity already paid can serve as collateral in a reverse mortgage. Reverse mortgages are federally insured (FHA) and offer homeowners and heirs additional benefits. 

Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), is A FHA insured loan and  used for 95 percent of all reverse mortgages.    Consequently, Colorado reverse mortgages are often a better choice for those who qualify. Traditional loan costs increase over time; reverse mortgage costs decrease.  To calculate the Total Annual Loan Cost or TALC, ask your mortgage professional for a helpful form similar to the APR of a traditional loan.
