Mortgage Specialists for Senior Homeowners

Are you a senior age 62 and older, a homeowner living in Colorado? If you are being sucked dry by living costs why not find out if you qualify for a reverse mortgage?

FHA Loan Limits in Colorado

FHA mortgage limits in Colorado are set on a county-to-county basis. In relation to limits in other states, Colorado is fairly average with a couple of counties with very high limits, which accounts for isolated areas of very high property values, such as Boulder and Durango areas.

FHA limits are key in determining which senior borrowers qualify for federally insured reverse mortgages, the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage or HECM. Homeowners in average markets, but whose home value is higher than the limit would likely benefit from a private reverse mortgage.

If you are considering a HECM remember to use HUD’s free resources to find a HUD-approved lender in Colorado.

Low Cost and Single-Purpose Reverse Mortgages

Colorado offers the Elderly Property Tax Deferral Program. Seniors age 65 plus, without income or disabled may qualify. The biggest difference between this and similar programs is the requirement that borrowers re-apply each year.
