  • The youngest homeowner is 62 or older
  • The purchased home will be occupied within 60 days of closing
  • The purchased home will be the primary residence
  • Only the HECM mortgage loan can be used to purchase the home
  • The difference between the purchase price of the home and the HECM proceeds will be paid in cash from the sale of an existing home or another source of funds
