Information from DFI

Reverse Mortgages

Note: Due to uncertainties associated with valuations in the housing market, some large well known lenders have stopped providing reverse mortgages. If you are interested in a reverse mortgage be sure you carefully investigate any company you may do business with, beginning with whether it is authorized to do business in Washington. DFI is happy to help you confirm proper licensing or regulation of any company. Contact us at 1-877-RING DFI (1-877-746-4334) with questions or concerns.
