The calculator is for illustrative purposes only and uses an estimated rate, term, origination fee, mortgage insurance pre-payment, etc. from information gathered from the LendingTree Network. The calculator and a Reverse Mortgage Loan are not intended to be investment advice, or a recommendation by LendingTree as it cannot guarantee the accuracy of the results. Private mortgage insurance may be required and estimates of the same are used in the calculation, but the calculator does not include taxes and insurance, which are required to be paid during the duration of a Reverse Mortgage Loan. Rates vary by lender, by state, and on consumers LTV and personal financial situation. Terms and Conditions Apply and vary per lender, so ask each lender what costs, fees and terms are available for your personal financial situation.

The Reverse Mortgage calculator is an estimate only and not an offer of credit by any one Lender. Reverse Mortgage requires that one of the homeowners be at least 62 years of age; have a substantial amount of equity in your primary residence and you intend to remain in the home for the duration of the loan. Taxes and interest still have to be paid even while your mortgage payments may stop. Speak with a qualified Reverse Mortgage Counselor to discuss all of your options.
