There are several mortgage options available specifically for seniors or retirees in Oregon:

  1. Reverse Mortgage: A reverse mortgage allows homeowners aged 62 or older to convert a portion of their home equity into cash. This can be a helpful option for retirees who want to supplement their income or pay off existing mortgage debt.
  2. Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM): HECM is a type of reverse mortgage insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). It offers more flexibility and lower upfront costs compared to traditional reverse mortgages.
  3. Refinance: Seniors and retirees may also consider refinancing their existing mortgage to lower their monthly payments or take advantage of lower interest rates. This can be a good option for those who have built up equity in their homes over the years.
  4. FHA Loans: The FHA offers various loan programs with lower down payment requirements and flexible eligibility criteria, which can be beneficial for seniors on a fixed income.


It's recommended to consult with a mortgage lender or financial advisor to discuss the best mortgage options for seniors or retirees in Oregon based on their individual financial needs and circumstances.
