Reverse Mortgage

About Reverse Mortgages

An FHA reverse mortgage (HECM loan) is a government insured loan.  It is a financial tool that allows you to access the equity in your home and convert it into cash.  With a reverse mortgage, there are not monthly mortgage payments from you.  Your obligations as a borrower are to continue to pay taxes and insurance on the home, keep it in good condition and comply with other loan terms.  

To qualify for a reverse mortgage, you must be 62 years and older, own your own home, and occupy it as your primary residence.  Reverse mortgage loans are not for everyone, so please give us a call today to discuss your options and see if it's right for you. Please review the links to the right for more detailed information about reverse mortgages.

About us



















Founded in 2001, Integrity 1st began as a small family company. The Dennehy family began the journey intially, by helping homeowners with purchases and forward mortgage refinancing.

Rapid change in the mortgage industry drove Integrity 1st to mature into different sectors of the mortgage industry in 2010, and soon the reverse mortgage became a mainstay of the loans being done at the company.

20 years of experience and stability in a volatile industry proves that dedication, integrity and care for our fellow man is the right way to run a business.  We don't just sell our clients, we make them a part of our family.
