Deciding how you prefer to be paid: by a monthly payment amount, a line of credit, or a one-time payment, you may take out a loan based on your home equity. The loan doesn't have to be paid back until the borrower sells his home, moves away, or dies. You or an estate representative is obligated to repay the reverse mortgage funds, interest accrued, and other finance charges at the time your house is sold, or you no longer live in it.
