A reverse mortgage is a loan product where a senior borrower can convert equity in their home into cash-flow or a line of credit, but more importantly enable them to not have to make a monthly mortgage payment for as long as they continue to live in their home as their primary residence. It is called a ‘reverse’ mortgage because, it is the lender who often has the obligation to make monthly payments to the borrower, which is the opposite of a standard forward mortgage. Payments can come in various forms, for example, in a Santa Barbara reverse mortgage, a borrower might receive funds in the form of monthly payments from the lender, as a lump sum amount, in the form of a credit line, or using some combination of these.

Santa Barbara Reverse Mortgage: How It Works
Generally, a Santa Barbara reverse mortgage would work in this way:
- First, the requirements would need to be checked. This means that the borrower or borrowers must be at least 62 years old, though the borrower’s spouse can be younger. The borrower would need to own the property that is used for the reverse mortgage (or use a HECM loan for purchase), and that property must be the borrower’s primary residence for at least 183 days per year.
- Once these requirements are met, the borrower will undergo the remaining steps in the reverse mortgage process. These include government-mandated counseling, the submission of an application and accompanying documents, appraisal of the home’s value, underwriting, approval and then finally, closing the Santa Barbara reverse mortgage.
